The director will preface.
After the successive sold outs on the LYRIC STAGE that made the musical “CHEAP CIGARETTE” which was based on the film of the same name, now the cinematic CHEAP CIGARETTE is ON TOUR with the director’s accompaniment. The big screen welcomes the film almost 20 years after it was first screened in a closed room. After all, its natural space is the cinema and not solitary viewing.
Have “CHEAP CIGARETTES” won the battle with time? Do they stay in touch with young people? Can the romantic side of the 90s stay relevant? Questions that only the “cloth” can answer.
It will be preceded by the short film “Blindfolded” by V. Mousidis. One of Renou’s first appearances on the big screen.
Cheap Cigarettes – SUMMARY
Athens – Summer
Nikos is waiting for something to happen in the heart of a big city. On his way he meets Sofia, a beautiful woman who has a nasty argument with her boyfriend at a payphone. He convinces her to spend the night together, walking through the empty town.
The nostalgia of a teenage flirt drives a petty con man into amorous delirium – while his neo-enlightenment mobster pursuers, in their attempt to appear dangerous by suppressing their artistic closures, end up being ridiculed.
