Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
This German drama begins on a Greek island where Maria (Vicky Volioti) runs a family restaurant. When her father dies suddenly, relatives ask why Maria's older sister Helena (Jasmin Tabatabai) didn't attend the funeral. To find her, Maria travels to Berlin, where she discovers that Helena is not a successful dancer but is a croupier in a seedy club. Maria moves into Helena's apartment, visits the club, and meets Roberto (Frank Stierens), who soon becomes her regular backgammon opponent at an adjacent restaurant. However, the shaky sibling relationship soon begins to collapse. With German and Greek dialogue, this film was shown at the 1998 Berlin Film Festival and the Thessaloniki Film Festival.
