Plot
"Crows" is a word in Greek used as an insult for both grave-diggers and politicians. The film is based on Emm. Rhoides' classic novel "The Grave-digger's Complaint" written in 1895. The island of Syros at the turn of the century. A fisherman, carried away by the promises of a local politician, sells everything he owns, buys shares in some mines and moves to Athens with his wife and seven children in search of a better life. When he loses all his money in a stock market crash and hungry and unemplyed, seeks the help of his local MP, he is appointed a grave digger in his neighborhood cemetery. Takis Spetsiotis has captured all the sarcasm and bitter irony of Rhoides' story and discerned its great possibilites in talking about things today with the words of yesterday.
Winner of the
best actress prize in Thessaloniki Film Festival 1991.
