Sixty-year-old Athens cop Sotiris (a deliciously world-weary Antonis Kafetzopoulos) is a very unusual police interrogator who can’t bring himself to pursue cases anymore, declaring “I don’t want to be unfair anymore. End of story.” Engaging in a little extra-curricular fundraising, he semi-accidently kills a corrupt security guard, a crime witnessed by his neighbor, Dora (Theodora Tzimou), a lonely cleaning lady who may or may not have purloined the loot. In these strange circumstances, romance spreads its wings...

Taking a tragicomic look at life clearly influenced by Aki Kaurismaki’s deadpan absurdism, Unfair World reflects the shifting (not to say “shifty”) ethics and morality in today’s debt-plagued Greece. From its opening image of a shabby, exhausted figure draped over a lonely park bench, fighting to stay awake in the dead of night, Filippo Tsitos’s prize-winning examination of moral exertion quickly establishes a tone of clinical precision and atmospheric stillness. Part police procedural, part character study, part minimalist comedy, Unfair World quietly unravels a complex ethical puzzle of justice, forgiveness and human frailty that all goes to prove no good deed goes unpunished.
