Plot
This is a comedy about the absurdity of the present way of life in a city like Athens. The main character in the film is a Greek petty bourgeois who comes up against the insanity reigning in the world that surrounds him, whether it is in places where people work, or in the public services, or in his family. He is shown on his weekly day off. He has various tasks to do: repair his car, undergo an examination by a Health Inspection Committee, post a parcel abroad . We see him calling at the motor-repair work-shop, a spare-parts shop, the Health Office, the Customs Office, the Post- office. He also finds time to visit his family, meet his girl- friend, venture briefly into the world of children through his own child, and finally ends up attending a business dinner with some of his colleagues (quite probably similarly minded men). In the course of the day, the tragicomical situation in which he becomes involved begins to affect him more and more powerfully, because all the people he happens to see burden him with their own personal problems, some of which are trivial and insignificant, and others monstrously strange. Finally, this stops him from establishing any real human relationship of his own.
