Oxygen

Another in the recent cycle of Greek “grunge” movies, showing the seamier sides of city and family lives—necessary antidotes to such sentimental entertainments as the popular A Touch of Spice. Codirected by Thanasis Papathanassiou and Michalis Reppas in a predominantly naturalistic mode, it's a relentless exposé of Greek racism, sexism, chauvinism, and materialism that follows the complicated bisexual trail of Christos (Yannis Tsimitselis), a gormless young man available for exploitation. The plot involves a shady real estate deal that results in blackmail and violent melodrama. Aka Blackmail Boy. In Greek with subtitles. 100 min.
