Loosely based on a true story, this engrossing 2004 thriller tells of a traumatized Albanian worker (Stathis Papadopoulos) who hijacks a bus in northern Greece. The script provides scant background on the different passengers, yet small gestures communicate their integrity: a firefighter instinctively puts himself in danger, an African soothes a racist who's suffering from drug withdrawal, and a lesbian stares helplessly through the bus window at a lover she may never see again. The handheld camera and extreme close-ups reflect the Albanian's agitation and his prisoners' uncertainty, while flashbacks reveal the events that motivated the hijacking. Constantine Giannaris directed. In Greek and Albanian with subtitles. 99 min.
