Papadopoulos & Sons (2012)

Director: Marcus Markou
United Kingdom, English


Feel good family movie. Well at least by the end it is!

Harry Papadopoulos (Stephen Dillane) is a Greek widower with 3 children. He starts off the film very well off due to his food industry empire. However, all goes sour when during the financial crisis. The former millionaire is left with nothing, except his Fish and Chips shop which is shared with his brother, Spiros (Georges Corraface). Harry struggles with losing his money and dealing with his insane but pretty awesome brother. Eventually, Harry realizes that happiness doesn’t come from money but from the love of those around you.

I enjoyed how the film allowed the audience to see what Harry’s life was before he became rich. I also enjoyed how Spiros embraced his Greek culture and had to reteach Harry to do the same. There were funny moments in the movie but it is definitely more of a drama. The one thing I disliked the most was how Harry fell in love with the divorced American woman. It just seemed so predictable.

Definitely  worth watching.

OPA!
