Greece's 'Little Fish' screened at Berlinale

From left to right: Journalist Popi Tsapanidou, director Yannis Economides and actors Petros Zervos, Vicky Papadopoulou and Vangelis Mourikis posing at a photocall for 'Little Fish' in Berlin on Tuesday.

A contract killer who moonlights at a bakery in order to raise cash to save the man who saved him is the central character in Yannis Economides's "Mikro Psari" (Little Fish), a dark drama and Greece's entry at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival's international competition.

The film was screened in Berlin on Tuesday marking the first time a Greek movie was included at the Berlinale's prestigious category following Theo Angelopoulos's "Weaping Meadow" nine years ago.

Defined as a "Mediterranean film noir" the film does not necessarily reflect the ongoing Greek crisis, noted the director at a press conference on the same day, but rather Western culture's current state of free fall and overall decadence.

Competing for the Golden Bear alongside "Little Fish" is Yann Demange’s “71” (UK), “Aimer, boire et chanter” by Alain Resnais (France), “Aloft” by Claudia Llhosa (Spain, Canada, France), “Die geliebten Schwestern” by Dominik Graf (Germany), Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (US, opening film) and George Clooney’s “The Monuments Men” (US).

"Little Fish" opens at Greek cinema theater on March 27.
