Rescued-Films-The-Taverna-Vangelis-Mourikis-as-KostasWIN an in-cinema double-pass to The Taverna

A brand new black comedy from award-winning Australian writer/director Alkinos Tsilimidos, The Taverna covers one utterly chaotic evening in a family run Greek restaurant.

Taverna owner, Kostas gets more than he bargained for when his popular belly dancer refuses to work to avoid her ex-husband and his new girlfriend, and is replaced at the last minute by one of his eager waitresses.

Matters are further complicated by a kidnapping, a scooter accident involving Kostas’ son, a well-meaning chef who cooks up rare treat and a sleazy customer who doesn’t know his limits. It all adds up to a darkly comic ride into the wild side of life, love, food and cultural differences.
