Shot in different locations around the city of Athens, the “Sentimentalists” walk a thin line between two opposing worlds: the lush environment of style, frailty and beauty which surrounds the Master’s remote villa and the dark alleys and sleazy bars and hotel rooms where they take care of his business. The only thing joining these worlds together is that in either case the heroes stand alone.
Beautiful but largely forgotten Greek songs are hand picked by the director Nicholas Triandafyllidis and original score composer Alexandros Voulgaris to breathe life into the characters and to add a local color to the story.
