Winner of Best International Feature at the 2016 Edinburgh International Film Festival, Suntan is an unflinching Greek drama with moments of humour in the vein of Athina Rachel Tsangari’s Attenberg or Yorgos Lanthimos’ Dogtooth and The Lobster. On the resort island of Antiparos, forty-something doctor Kostis (Chevalier’s Efthymis Papadimitriou) becomes infatuated with a group of hedonistic young tourists, particularly 21-year-old Anna. An amusingly discomforting coming of-middle-age film, Suntan is a cautionary tale of a man’s quest to regain a bygone youth.

For the sad-eyed Papadimitriou, a staple of Greek film and TV, this is his international breakout role, and he bravely reveals himself in the camera’s unflattering comparative gaze.
