Add to basket REMBETIKO



Rembetiko is a passionate exploration of rembetika music: a form of urban blues that expresses the history and depth of Greek culture. The film mirrors the music's style, offering a glimpse into that culture through a heart-wrenching story written and directed by Costas Ferris and a haunting original score written by Stavros Xarhakos. Rembetiko charts the tragic true story of one of Greece's most popular rembetiko singers, Marika Ninou (Sotiria Leonardou): her professional successes and personal disasters. Her rise as a singer is shadowed by key moments in Greek history from such as the Nazi occupation and the CivilWar. Her life is full of torment, and her pain is evident in her singing. Marika Ninou is as cherished in Greece as Edith Piaf is in France. This is her vie en rose. Rembetiko is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Silver Bear at the 1984 Berlin Film Festival.
