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.
