Sounds interesting:

Quote:
Alexander Philipopolus, a famous journalist at a political magazine in Paris, in the days when his life is at a crossroads, his career is uncertain and his family and his marriage are being disrupted, receives a letter from his cousin Vani from Greece that his father Lazarus died in Macedonia. And everything is turning upside down! Alexander departs to his motherland Greece, goes in Athens, to investigate exactly what happened to his father, Lazarus, whom he does not even know at all. In Athens, Alexander will accidentally meet Andrea, a photojournalist who accidentally meets Alexander on the day when she violently ends her relationship with long-time mistress Nana.

He is a careful and deliberate mature man. However, the sorrow in his eyes immediately attracts Andrea. They travel together from Athens to Alexander's birthplace, a small village situated in the vicinity of the border with the neighboring state of Macedonia. Alexander returns to his homeland after more than twenty years, to find out what actually happened to his father Lazarus. He will face many truths and lies, which in that part of the world remained unresolved since the Greek Civil War in 1946. All this is suffering for Alexander, but for Andrea, the beautiful landscapes, the openness and warmth of the province and the exotic people and places she didn't even know that exist in Greece represent a motivation for her get back to her quest of lost faces and stories - her photography passion, after a long period of time. While Alexander struggles with his family and his birthplace, which is apparently divided into two groups - natives Macedonians and new-comers Greeks, Andrea enjoys the wonderful moments filled with many "lost" faces. Alexander faces the fact that his family is deeply divided and with deteriorated relations. His mother Maria and her family are Greeks who have come from Turkey to the village of Lazar's father, who belongs to the group of indigenous Macedonians who fought in the Second World War and the civil war in Greece on the side of the Communists who lost the war. His father Lazar, who is part of heroic tales well-known in the village (alike those for Alexander the Great), married his mother Marija despite the opposing of her family. Within only a couple of months of their marriage, at the end of the war, Lazar as a communist is forced to leave Marija who at that time is pregnant with Alexander, and departs to Russia and later situates in Yugoslavia, namely in Macedonia. Alexander grows up in Marija's family where speaking about his father Lazar is strictly forbidden. In order to protect Alexander, Marija agrees with that. In high school, Alexander receives a scholarship and leaves for Paris where he makes a career as a journalist - political analyst. In his birthplace, Alexander comes into contact with a group of anarchists who are preparing terrorist attacks in order to draw attention to the Macedonian issue in Greece. The anarchists, driven by the heroic stories of his father Lazar, expect Alexander to join them. Alexander refuses and faces a terror. This is how his tragedy begins and the end of the journey that will take him to Skopje, Macedonia, where he will truly meet his father Lazar, whom everyone thinks is dead. Andrea will capture with her camera all the lost faces and stories she encounters in Greece and Macedonia, including the personality and story of Alexander in whom she will fall in love. Andrea will give birth to Alexander's child, following his tragic death. Alexander dies crucified like Jesus Christ on a billboard that advertises the European road leading from Rome to the West to Istanbul in the East, splitting Macedonia in two.

And this from a Greek web site:
Quote:
Mocking of Christ” Triggers Outrage in both Greece and FYROM

...Digging about the truth the protagonist with a highly symbolic name of Alexander discovers the “genocide of Macedonians by the Greeks,” the film claims, according to Greek media.

The film is considered not only anti-hellenic in Greece but also triggered strong reactions in Skopje where it had its premiere in the movie theaters on Monday. Authorities tried to stop the film but the justice rejected relevant objections. The film is said to be supported by the nationalist President of the country, an opponent of the Prespes Agreement with Greece.

It is especially the scene where the protagonist is shown crucified over a map of Greece with Egnatia highway on his back and the stars of the European Union to form a halo around his head.

According to film director Jani Bojadzi “Alexander dies crucified like Jesus Christ on a billboard that advertises the European road leading from Rome to the West to Istanbul in the East, splitting Macedonia in two.”

...The film has been featured by Greek media as “nationalistic and irredentist propaganda,” and as “provocative anti-Greek.”

“As if it is not enough that they mock Christ by showing the protagonist being crucified on the map of Greece and they also show Macedonia divided into two,” writes daily TA NEA.

Some Greek media go so far to write “they want to crucify Greece and the Greeks.”

As for the “outrage” in FYROM...Zaev has come out in defence of the Albanians, who have been offended by the movie's portrayal of UCK terrorists. UCK have even threatened Jani Bojadzi's life over the portrayal which has prompted the movie director to make a statement to the media, saying "Macedonia's Ministry of Culture's earlier statement that the film's portrayal of UCK terrorists is an attempt to brand all Albanians as terrorists is a slide into fascism and censure. With that statement they have invited death threats and violence against me as an artist as well as violence and terror to the movie “Mocking of Christ” as a form of art" (I should note that the current Ministerial Portfolio is held by an Albanian, Asaf Ademi, who recently took over the job from Robert Alagjozovski). Getting back to Zaev, although he hasn't seen the movie, he concurs that the movie spreads “Hate Speech” against the Albanians as per the advice given to him by his advisers. He has called on the Director of the Macedonian Film Agency for a cease and desist on all activities surrounding the promotion of this movie because “that is what is expected of us now”...I'm sure he doesn't just mean the supposed “hate speech” against the Albanians but, much, much more importantly, the expectation to fulfill the Prespa Agreement obligations of not promoting the existence of Macedonians over the Greek border.

What a joke!

Outrage in FYROM?

First, they want to talk about upholding agreements but I thought we agreed that we are now North Macedonia, not FYROM

Second, what control does Macedonia or Greece have over the ability of a film director to make a film. Is that European "democracy", where we can only talk about what the governments allow us to?

Third, those fucking shiptari find a way to insert themselves into everything and our pathetic leaders invite them and encourage them to do so. Only shiptari could be offended by a movie that is about Greece and Macedonia.

Macedonians have not even begun to understand what type of hole they have dug for themselves in relation to the Prespa agreement. Its going to become a nearly constant occurrence that Greece complains about something or the other. Lets see how long it last before people realize they are being ruled by fiat.

Idiots. The movie looks good though. Looking forward to watching it.

Bodyguard on Netflix was great.
I think Richard Madden may well be the next James Bond.

I just finished it a week ago, it was an awesome series. A very clever portrayal about how politics is rife with many forms and degrees of corruption.

Definitely watch it. Probably the best show of that type I've have watched in some time.

Is bad blood any good?

I started watching "Merlin" lately, surprisingly easy to watch despite dabbling in a genre that I typically don't like.

Another great one is "Sherlock". Holy shit was it good!
