Greek directory/designer Gabriel Psaltakis's short film "The Girl on the Wall" is a charming and silly little romance about graffiti, fashion, and ennui.
THE GIRL ON THE WALL
Quirky and adorable! I enjoyed this a lot.
That’s really well done technically too! I didn’t realize that live action simultaneous with animation had made it into the small-filmmaker budget zone already! And the credits are impressive too.
Ahhh , Greece !!! The wart on the bum of humanity … ohhh the humanity …
Tzigger poula !!!
Nice video btw …
Awesome!! I will be looking for more of this guy’s work. I was laughing the whole time during the “makeover”!
Great :) The first time around, I didn’t twig that it was in Greek for some reason: my Greek’s so rusty, I was just reading the subtitles.
But listening to it with a Greeker head on, even though I could only get every Nth word, I felt the subtitles weren’t doing the writing and characters justice. Like, the long “blah blah” bit actually has them going “Ah, women, eh?” and so on: you learn the kind of guy-stuff they are talking about.
The fact that it stands up so well even with the mediocre subtitling is very cool.
Think I now want to hunt down more Greek subbed stuff, to drag my Greek out of complete rustiness.
That was great. Loved the art and the muchyness of it all.
