A funny take on xenophobia
Bold universal social commentary and heartwarming specificity are what make Filippos Tsitos? bittersweet dramedy as a bright example of one of Greece?s finest inventions: satirehttp://cineuropa.org/ffocus.aspx?lang=en&documentID=149608
Bottom Line: A comic gem about a Greek bursting with national pride who discovers he may not be entirely Greek.
The title of "Plato?s Academy" is a little misleading because no Greek sages are in sight. Rather the film?s Greeks are four scruffy lay-abouts, three of whom own convenience stores at the same quiet Athens intersection. This allows them to sit and guzzle coffee or beer all day while studying the hard-working foreign laborers who have invaded "their" neighborhood. http://www.m-trailer.com/platos-academy-film-review/
