The Heart of the Beast

Writer-director Renos Haralambidis stars as a discharged Greek soldier who returns home to a mountain of debt incurred by his late mother; his advanced degree in philosophy does nothing for his job prospects, so when he reconnects with two high school buddies, he goes along with their scheme to rob a bank. This 2005 comedy strains at the beginning but picks up steam as the thieves' characters emerge. The dimmest and coarsest of them (well played by Giorgos Voultzatis) also winds up being the wackiest and most endearing, which underscores Haralambidis's populist, antimaterialist sentiments. In Greek with subtitles. 79 min.
