In Athens today, Kostas, a progressive ideologist, lives a regular life with his wife and their teenage daughter and son, until his home is ransacked by a hooded gang. The experience of extreme violence shatters the family's peace, bringing his father's hunting rifle violently into their lives. The story of a morally demolished man who used to be the pillar of his family and of his struggle to get life back to normal.
Great movie with great acting
I haven't seen many Greek movies but I've been impressed with a couple of recent movies from the cradle of civilization, including The Enemy Within. This is an action movie as well as a family drama. A fairly well-to-do family in modern Athens is victimized by a gang of criminals and the father's response to the crime is the great dilemma of the movie. The acting is very good and the musical score is exceptional and fitting for the film. The movie is a morality play like the dramas of the ancient Greeks. I enjoy foreign films because it's like traveling on the cheap, and this film gives us a look at downtown Athens, as well as some beautiful country in the Greek mountains. Good movie and rightfully received some awards.
