Delivery

A soulful young man (Thanos Samaras) arrives at an Athens bus depot and drifts through the seedy backstreets, speaking little but impressing people with his gigantic penis. (It never appears on-screen, but I'm willing to take their word.) Eventually he lands a job delivering pizzas and falls in love with a coworker (Alexia Kaltsiki), whose heroin habit has forced her into sexual servitude with a Chinese dealer. This 2003 Greek drama by veteran director Nikos Panayotopoulos creates a palpably grimy streetscape whose homeless youths measure out their lives in street drugs and casual sex. But the hero's thwarted passion never achieves critical mass, and at the end Panayotopoulos makes an unfortunate turn into magical realism. In Greek with subtitles. 100 min.
