Hard Goodbyes: My Father

7.2 IMDb2002 • Tyskland • Hellas • 113 min

Elias (Yorgos Karayannis), a young boy in Athens, Greece, doesn't see much of his dad, traveling salesman Hristos (Stelios Mainas), but the two still share a close bond. Hristos has promised to watch the moon landing with his son, but a car accident cuts his life short. As Elias's older brother, Aris (Hristos Bouyotas), and mother (Ioanna Tsirigouli) try to come to terms with their loss, Elias denies his father's death and concocts elaborate fantasies involving himself, his dad and space travel.
