The Man (Aris Servetalis) takes great pride in his driving. He's employed to deliver artisanal honey to a narcoleptic eccentric millionaire. The Man never leaves his car, and when he makes a rendezvous with his ex-wife and children, they don't get out of their car, either. Late delivering the honey, the Man loses his job and has his driving skills called into question. Distraught, he crashes his car, and is rescued by a motorcycle gang that takes him in. Playfully symbolic, this crackpot "Metamorphosis" explores the dual absurdities of masculine identity and contemporary Greece. Official Selection, 2012 Sundance, Rotterdam, Karlovy Vary Film Festivals.
