Nights Gambled Away

After her father dies, a Greek woman travels to Berlin to visit her estranged older sister, who's abandoned a dancing career to work as a croupier in an illegal gambling den. The two leads more than compensate for the fairly conventional plot: Jasmin Tabatabai is volatile but vulnerable as the older sister, while Viki Volioti gives a dignified, understated performance as the younger sister, whose cool, judgmental facade conceals her unhappiness and resentment toward their late father. The script falters when it turns away from the women, its side characters sketchy at best, yet director Angeliki Antoniou captures the insular mentality of immigrants in Berlin and the plight of being boxed in by one's past mistakes. 91 min.
