An effective mood piece from Greece, directed by Nikos Vergitsis. A young man is shaken (literally) out of his apathy when an earthquake strikes his apartment building; he resolves to finally make his move on his best friend’s girl, whom he has worshiped from afar. There aren’t many surprises in the script (which might have served any young director of the French New Wave), but Vergitsis keeps it percolating with striking atmospheres and sudden leaps into stylization.
