Xamou directed by Clio Fanouraki (Greece) 2017 reveals some of the hidden charms of Crete.
As manager of a luxury hotel, Jonny is accustomed to a world of privilege. His ex wife and three children rely on him for financial support.
His sudden termination, after the sale of the hotel chain and a reshuffle of executive positions, leaves him emotionally adrift. He still dresses daily in suit and tie, but aside from efforts to find new employment, his waking hours are consumed by online gambling.
However, his life slowly changes from the moment his girlfriend coaxes him outside into the sunlight and his subsequent interaction with local people on the island.
Only two more days remain of the 15th San Francisco Greek Film Festival. While closing night is already sold out, tickets are still available for Friday 19 October 2018.
