A scruffy but handsome vagabond (Giorgos Karamichos) unexpectedly finds his vocation when his uncle gets him a dishwashing job in a fine Athens restaurant and the autocratic head chef discovers his culinary gifts. The novice enjoys a meteoric rise to the top rank of his new profession, though his hubris takes over and he becomes maniacally obsessed with creating the perfect dish. Written and directed by Stergios Niziris, this 2004 Greek feature loses steam after taking a serious and predictable turn, but for the most part it's a charming bit of fluff. In Greek with subtitles. 96 min.
