In this well-crafted and excellently interpreted film, a group of jaded youth look for the meaning of life and yet throw away any chances of a meaningful existence by throwing away social norms: they steal, lie, cheat, and make love with either apathy or no concern for harming anyone else. The difficulty in accepting the film as anything more than a waste of time, no matter how well executed, is that the director Nicos Nicolaidis seems to be holding up the behavior of these eventually martyred youth as a standard to be emulated or admired -- and he maintains that young people like these men and women are making a statement against the fascist tendencies of modern society.
