A Blast

Maria is running away on the highway. She is alone in her roaring SUV. Behind her, fire and a case full of money. In front of her, the hopeless vastness of the motorway. Only a day before she was a caring mother, a loving wife, a responsible daughter. Today she has gone rogue.

By Syllas Tzoumerkas ( Greece – Germany – Netherlands 2014, 83 min. )

 

Set against the volatile backdrop of the collapse of the Greek economy, Syllas Tzoumerkas’ freewheeling and full-on drama is a shrill expression of anger, driven forcefully and with a certain fearlessness by a striking lead performance by Angeliki Papoulia as a free-spirited woman who reaches the end of her tether.” ( Screendaily, Mark Adams )

 

“Tzoumerkas has managed to combine various elements of the story in a surprisingly disciplined way, resulting in a wholesome viewing experience. A Blast is a film of controlled anger and revolt, just like its main character: when Maria goes to “blast”, she does so with logic and after meticulous planning.” ( CineEuropa, August 2014 )
