God Loves Caviar (O theos agapaei to haviari)
Dir. Yannis Smaragdis. 2012, 99 mins. DCP. In Greek with English subtitles. With Sebastian Koch, Catherine Deneuve, John Cleese, Lakis Lazopoulos. The epic story of Ioannis Varvakis (1745–1825), who rose from humble beginnings to become a confidant of Catherine the Great of Russia and the head of one of the largest mercantile empires in Europe, is brought to vivid life by an international cast. From pirate to patriot, the life journey of this enterprising and tirelessly inventive man is as compelling as the film is visually striking. (The film is mostly in English.)
