Running away on the highway, Maria is alone in her roaring SUV. Behind her, fire and a case full of money. In front of her, the hopeless vastness of the motorway. Only a day before she was a caring mother, a loving wife, a responsible daughter. Today she has gone rogue.

Indiewire & the Playlist Jessica Kiang

Punchy, Difficult, Allegorically Urgent Greek Tragedy: In A Blast, a narrative of personal liberation becomes a political allegory of powerful pessimism. Maria, like her country, may escape the shackles of unfair debt and struggle and poverty, but she can only do it by outrunning her pursuers, leaving a destabilized family behind and eventually facing the future in a state of staggering aloneness. () Tzoumerkas refuses to portray Maria as anything so uncomplicated as a victim. Maria is explicitly a woman wife, daughter, mother, sister and some of the scenes of most urgent, shocking power come from quieter moments when she simply, clearly negates or repudiates one of those prescribed roles. She quietly tells her counseling group that she never wants to see her children again, she coolly sits across a dinner table from her father, now a widower, and explains in the cruelest terms how unnecessary and revolting he is to her: parricide over a bowl of soup. In fact Marias journey can be read as a series of assassinations, of everything and everyone she has ever known. Read more →

 

The Hollywood Reporter Jonathan Holland

A Blast, Syllas Tzoumerkass second film, is the frantic, unsettling and intriguing record of a womans journey, a journey more emotional than literal. The watching viewer is strapped in beside her, along for the ride, hair blown back. () I ve lived a ridiculous life: an insight of a woman on the edge of a nervous breakdown, forced by crisis into a full-scale reappraisal of things. This is the pain at the heart of Angeliki Papoulias dangerously committed, exposed performance, and its the brave exposure of this pain which, against the odds, permits the viewer to sympathize with a woman who has chosen to abandon her children. Though her character is not having a blast, it looks exactly as though Papoulia is. () It is all shot by D.P. Pantelis Mantzanas with captivating energy and brio, cutting furiously back between past and present via Kathrin Dietzels via sharp, seamless editing, as it renders Marias furious, unfocused energy and mood swings, and becoming blindingly high-speed over the final fifteen minutes. () A black, bleak, urgently contemporary film, as a whole, A Blast is just that: Syllas Tzoumerkas charged personal diatribe against an economic system seemingly designed first to make people, and then to break them. Read more →

 

Screen Daily Mark Adams

Set against the volatile backdrop of the collapse of the Greek economy, Syllas Tzoumerkas freewheeling and full-on drama is a shrill expression of anger, driven forcefully and with a certain fearlessness by a striking lead performance by Angeliki Papoulia as a free-spirited woman who reaches the end of her tether. A Blast never resorts to subtext or allegory as other recent Greek films which referred to the countrys economic situation have done, instead it tackles things full on with barely repressed anger and a take no-prisoners attitude. Its smart structure, vibrant performances and lusty sexuality should make it of interest to distributors, while festivals (it had its world premiere at Locarno) will likely also be keen. () A striking performance by Angeliki Papoulia is the jittery, beating heart of A Blast, with her Maria a passionate an open soul who embraces life and love, but finds that passion beaten out of her by a variety of circumstances. Syllas Tzoumerkas (who made his feature debut with Homeland which premiered at the 2010 Venice Critics Week) keeps the film tense and edgy as it spirals towards a moody almost existential ending as she speeds alone in her SUV into the Greek countryside, evading police, and simply looking to escape. Read more →

 

Paweł T. Felis Wyborcza [PL]
**** Another example of new Greek cinema, a film experimenting with form, immersed in the crisis of everyday Greece and Europe, but also painfully universal. () Angeliki Papoulia is a volcano of emotions () What is most interesting in Syllas Tzoumerkas work is also what is most universal: the rejection of illusion. We do not really know what to do next, still, regardless the price, its worth opening our eyes!

Polityka Janusz Wróblewski [PL]
***** A uniquely intelligent, unprecedented portrait that reveals the moods, secrets and deep divisions that run in the Greek society in the times of crisis. There has never been such a powerful film about it before.
