: Reviews :

A composite film, made up of three different stories, each one involving a person who is approaching a critical moment in his life. A silver coin on the lips: while at a dig in Macedonia, an architect, whose son shot himself one year earlier while doing his military service, discovers an unlooted tomb, containing the remains of an officer of the Hellenistic period. The last of the lesser whites: a group of ornithologists go to the Evros river Delta to find, with help of an elderly game warden, the last lesser white fronted goose which has sought refuge there. When the goose is shot by a poacher, the game warden will pay him back in the same coin. Vietnam: a middle-aged factory-owner, distraught over the fact that his wife has taken the children and left him, ends up at a wild bouzouki joint in the middle of nowhere. He proceeds to wreck the place, until in the end, he actually has the building demolished.
