PAUSE (2018)

[PAFSI] [ΠΑΥΣΗ]

Locked for years in a stifling routine with her uncaring but demanding husband Costas, fiftyish housewife Elpida begins to see things in a new light as she enters menopause. Visions of violent retribution begin to play out in her mind, perhaps inspired by the steady diet of thrillers she watches in the evenings, while Costas watches sports programs on a separate TV in the same room. The arrival of a handsome, eastern European housepainter in their apartment building gives rise to another kind of waking fantasy. Tonia Mishiali's debut feature combines black humor and the suspense of a psychological thriller, as fantasy and reality blur into a new way of being for Elpida. Official Selection, 2019 Karlovy Vary Film Festival. DIR/SCR/PROD Tonia Mishiali; SCR Anna Fotiadou; PROD Andros Achilleos, Stelana Kliris. Cyprus/Greece, 2018, color, 96 min. In English and Greek with English subtitles. NOT RATED
