Movie I dig 030: Οι ιππείς της Πυλου (Oi ippeis tis Pylou) (Riders Of Pylou) (2011)

Oi ippeis tis Pylou might be the most insanely cool nonsense film I’ve ever seen.

It’s about the actor Telemachus who is pretty much broke and has some banks running after trying to get their money back. Telemachus decides to give them a run for their money, quite literally that is. He leaves Athens and closes up his studio in a hurry, leaving only things he can’t carry and a quote on his studio’s window, “How can you take something from someone who doesn’t own anything?”. Through one of his friends he ends up in a place called Pylou (he doesn’t know he is going there, the driver just takes him there). Pylou appears to be a remote castle in the mountains. At the castle he is taken in by two brothers – at least one of them is mentally challenged – who breed horses and preside over the castle and it’s collection of cultural and intellectual property. Still a bit shaken up by having to leave Athens, the smoked up drive to Pylou and the peculiar reception by the brothers, he starts to explore the surroundings and finds himself in one weird situation after the other, meeting one extravagant character after the other.

The plot has same strange and quite unexpected twists, but all of that works out well with the strong and strange characters. Definitely a film I enjoyed very much.

Sorry, no subs for this trailer.
