Vassilis Vafeas wrote and directed this groundbreaking Greek satire, among the first to explore the relationships between man and technology in the national oeuvre. Minas Hadjissavas stars as a chemist who goes to work for a small family company which -- although it offers a close, personalized working environment -- is too disorganized for his tastes. Next he takes a job at a large corporation, where the cold, impersonal atmosphere detaches him from his scientific passions and turns him into a robot-like supervisor, efficient but filled with self-loathing at what he has become. Nelly Angelidou co-stars with Lefteris Voyatzis and Antonis Antoniou.
