Check out the first trailer for the film which marks the feature directorial debut of Australian filmmaker Tony Krawitz. Louise Fox adapts the screenplay based on the epic novel by Christos Tsiolkas.
Dead Europe, which comes from the producers of the excellent Michael Fassbender drama Shame as well as intriguing Australian film Animal Kingdom, is a tense and moody mystery set on the turbulent streets of contemporary Europe.
The film follows a young photographer named Isaac (Ewen Leslie in a breakthrough performance) who - while taking his deceased father's ashes from Australia to Greece - comes to learn that something sinister happened in his family's past involving a young Jewish boy. Despite an effort to distract himself with a mix of random sex and drugs, Isaac's world begins to unravel as he realizes that he cannot escape the ghosts of the past.

Being Greek, and having lived there for 3 years, I find this to be quite an oddball film judging from what I see.
