Storyline

Two brothers, Mihalis and Nondas are working in a mortuary trying to make money, since Nondas owes a great amount of money to the Greek Mob and has to repay it; so he proposes to Mihalis that they start robbing banks. In order to stop the rapid increment of crime activities, the chief of the police has placed undercover officers in all bank stores, making the two brother's lives harder. The situation gets even worse when Mihalis falls in love with a bank employee. Big Bang is a insane comedy where nobody is the one he seems to be, no one does what he has to do and the consequence of all the above is something you wouldn't wish not even to your worst enemy. Written by Orfeas V.

Excellent... Or am I biased?
20 May 2009 | by yiapapSee all my reviews

I gave this movie one of my highest marks ever. But is it because I am Greek and therefore biased towards this movie? I don't think so. In fact throughout the movie I kept thinking that if it wasn't illegal I would create English subtitles for it as I'm sure that very few people would be able to view and enjoy it abroad.

The movie is about a normal Joe (Mihalis in our case) who finds himself between a rock and a hard place, socially, professionally and emotionally. His positive attitude towards life doesn't really work in the relationship with his brother (Nondas) who is a wannabe master criminal.

Nondas' dealings force Michalis into crime (bank robberies) when at the same time Michalis desperately tries to have an affair with a covert policewoman assigned to bank robberies, with personal problems of her own.

The excellent plot, the unexpectedly clever dialogues, the good cinematography and the almost excellent casting and performing adds up to an excellent movie.

My only reservation is with Lena's role. Mrs. Triandafyllidou was borderline atrocious on a demanding part.

All in all this movie reminded me of Two Smoking Barrels. If you like non-Hollywood movies, give it a try. Then again... it's only Greek to me so... :-)
