Based on the book by the same title by George Skampardonis the film takes place in Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1942-1943. Under German occupation a young couple, George and Estrea, fall in love. But in these times love between a Christian and a Jew is forbidden. The adventurous love story, caught between a brutal totalitarian regime and the absurdity of racial discrimination, finds refuge in the historic Ouzeri Tsitsanis, a taverna the composer Vasilis Tsitsanis runs. There, the great Tsitsanis is going through his most creative years and composes his best known songs, among them the legendary Συννεφιασμένη Κυριακή (Cloudy Sunday).
Ouzeri Tsitsanis is a co-production with OTE TV and distributed by Feelgood. The film’s soundtrack is written by Themis Karamouratidis. The movie is coming to the theaters in Greece on December 3, 2015.
