02 Gen «The Bezonians» by Savvas D. Michael
“The Bezonians is more than a social club”
We can only agree with the persuasive narrative voice of Plato Andinos (Karras), who guides us to get to know the wild bunch that lives and thrives around the nightclub, where the stories of second-generation Greek gangsters – and not only – intertwine.
The director’s exceptional cast of character actors – which includes Andreas Karras, Vinnie Jones, Marina Sirtis – give life to eccentric anti-heroes, and the sharp dialogues they convincingly deliver smoothly swith from violence to humor, from romance to profanity.
After an in-depth introduction of characters, schemes, and scams, halfway through the 98 minutes of runtime the real plot begins – along with the real trouble.
As well as blisteringly entertaining, “The Bezonians” is also very well-executed and played.
The packaging and the aesthetic sector of the film are remarkable and enhance the interior settings with relevant use of light, and the flawless editing juggles between cuts back and forth between descriptive moments and everyday life.
Whether you are a fan of British gangster flicks or not, The Bezonians is a feel-good movie that looks amazing.
