Kenterman offers [something] personal and touching to the harshest and darkest moments in recent Greek history … Through Nikos, she creates a parallel world, so romantic that it’s almost out-of-time.”

Vassilis Economou, Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival

When the bank threatens to repossess middle-aged bachelor Nikos’s tailor shop after his father falls ill, Nikos decides to reinvent himself as a travelling tailor, bringing style and confidence to the women of Athens. Superlatively written and directed, with visual storytelling derived from the silent comedy tradition, Kenterman’s first feature is pure pleasure from first to last frame. Winner of Best Costume Design and Best Original Musical Score at the 2021 Hellenic Film Academy Awards.

In Greek and Russian with English subtitles
