Magiki polis / The Magic City (1954) DVD5
MAGIC CITY is the fantastic debut of Nikos Koundouros, one of Greece’s most iconoclastic postwar filmmakers. Blending Italian Neorealism with a personal stylistic sensibility that anticipates Jean-Pierre Melville’s gangster chic, MAGIC CITY stars Giorgos Foundas (also of STELLA) as Kosmas, a young man scraping by in the slums of Athens trying to make an honest living – while carrying on with a married woman and bumming around with hoods in the underground clubs and arcade alleys of "Magic City". When the bank threatens to repossess his truck — source of his pride, a benefit to his community, and lifeblood of his labor — he reluctantly takes a smuggling gig in hopes of making his payments — but learns he’s in for a little more than he bargained for.
