Ari feels trapped: parents demanding he get married on one side, the need for a 'real' job on the other. He relies on his raging hormones for guidance, creating further problems as he struggles to come to terms with his homosexuality and the difference between honest relationships and unbridled, anonymous lust.
It's heavy going, and at times it borders on a strange, aggressive self-pity, but the pace is relentless; an impressive feature debut from Kokkinos.
