Film: L, Storyline: A 40-year-old man lives and works in his car. He is a dedicated driver and meets his family at fixed times in parking lots.
This is a Greek film about a driver-turned-biker-turned-bear-turned-skipper. This guy (whose name is never mentioned in the film) is unsure of what he wants. He is learning new things and trying to understand himself. Each character in the film is extremely quirky. The characters maintain straight faces throughout the movie and still manage to make you laugh. The movie is funny, but the characters go about doing things in life in all seriousness.
A song towards the end of the film is a stealer. The protagonist goes on singing, reminding you of Peter Griffin from Family Guy.
It’s a quirky movie that may not please everyone. However, the cinematography is undeniably commendable.
