Eduart (2007)

Inspired by true events, Eduart, a young Albanian raised in a cruel and oppressive family environment, leaves his country for Athens with the dream of becoming a rock star and living a better life. His reckless character and the passions of his youth lead him to commit a crime. One night, with the ease of a man of no moral scruples, he kills another human being. Chased by everyone, even by his own self, he is imprisoned under the harshest conditions. His acquaintance with a German doctor forces him to reflect upon his hideous crime, a secret that is hidden deep inside of him. Eduart confesses his crime and his deep remorse leads him from darkness to light. Like a modern Raskolnikov, he passes from crime to “punishment”, by daring to admit his guilt. Directed by Angeliki Antoniou, the film won 11 awards at Thessaloniki Film Festival and being nominated at Moscow International Film Festival.
