A Blast (I ekrixi)

Syllas Tzoumerkas

_“I want us to have kids and I want us to have money.“_ Maria's wishes from the past are told as flashbacks from a better time: Her future is full of hopes, the sex with her husband is passionate, her family is intact. Today, Maria and her children stand before the ruins of this past and she decides, radically and with an unbound rage, to give everything up and attack everything: She abandons her kids along with a suitcase full of money. A Blast proves worthy of its title, as Syllas Tzoumerkas' breathless movie about the financial crisis in Greece sweeps across its audience. Expertly, the movie jumps between past, present and a disillusioned future, while main actress Angeliki Papoulia racks up a top notch performance. A magnificent tour de force across poltical, economical, domestic and emotional crises. _"Set against the volatile backdrop of the collapse of the Greek economy, Syllas Tzoumerkas’ freewheeling and full-on drama is a shrill expression of anger, driven forcefully and with a certain fearlessness by a striking lead performance by Angeliki Papoulia as a free-spirited woman who reaches the end of her tether."_, (Screen Daily) *_In attendance of director Sylts Tzoumerkas._*
