Cast: Pinelopi Tsilika, Sofia Kokkali, Aneza Papadopoulou, Andreas Constantinou.
It is the Greek island of Andros during World War II where the lives of its women are dominated by long periods of isolation brought on by the seafaring nature of the island’s economy. Two sisters – the quiet and reticent Orsa (Pinelopi Tsilika) and the extroverted Moshca (Sofia Kokkali) – become entangled in a love triangle that develops with life-shattering consequences.
A truly lavish period drama, sumptuously photographed by Simos Sarketzis and scored by Katerina Polemi, Little England captures the stark beauty of Andros, weaving breathtaking imagery into a multi-layered and complex storyline.
