Hora proelefsis / Homeland (2010) DVD9
In Homeland Tzoumerkas and co-writer Youla Boudali, who also stars in the movie, follows a family over three generations: growing up in the 50's after the restoration of democracy in Greece, then their lives during the 70's, and finally a look at the current generation. Dysfunctional at best, the characters are torn apart over an adoption issue within the family and resentment and secrets and lies define their relationships. Stergios in particular (Thanos Samaras) is full of hatred. His mother gives his brother up for an adoption within the family, leaving him to deal with his unstable mother, Gena. At the same time the family is also forced to deal with a grandfather who has taken sick and is unlikely to recover, as arguments erupt about who should care for him. Years later, both brothers are grown up and, as the family tensions threaten to explode, the country itself is coming apart at the seams. Riots erupt in the streets, marking the beginning of a profound crisis in Greece not only financially but also psychologically.
