First Images From TALE 52 Director's WEDNESDAY 04:45
It was all the way back in the autumn of 2008 that we first wrote about Greek director Alexis Alexiou and his mind bending debut film Tale 52, a great favorite of ours in the Toronto International Film Festival selection that year. The current wave of Greek cinema was not even a glimmer on the horizon at that point and Alexiou was largely overlooked as a result but he returns this year with his long awaited - by me, anyway - sophomore effort, Wednesday 04:45.
With the film now in post production we've got a look at the first images. Take a look in the gallery below.32 hours into the life of Stelios, a small time night-club owner in Athens, who struggles to salvage his bankrupt business from the loan-sharks as the city and the country go up in flames.
