The Eternal Return of Antonis Paraskevas tells the story of a middle-aged man, Antonis Paraskevas, who finds himself repeatedly reliving the same day over and over again. Antonis lives a mundane life with his wife and two children, working as a clerk in a bank. He wakes up every day to the same routine, the same breakfast, the same drive to work, and the same interactions with his coworkers.

As Antonis goes through the same motions over and over again, he becomes increasingly restless and discontented. He feels trapped in a never-ending cycle and longs for something more. Eventually, Antonis starts to notice subtle differences in each iteration of the day, leading him to believe that he can change the outcome.

As Antonis tries to break free from the cycle, he becomes increasingly obsessed with finding a way out. He starts to see patterns in his life that he had never noticed before, such as the way his coworkers greet each other or the timing of his morning commute. Antonis begins to experiment with different actions to see if he can change the outcome of the day.

The plot of the movie is driven by Antonis' quest to break out of the cycle, and his interactions with the people in his life. The movie explores themes of free will, fate, and the nature of reality, forcing the audience to question what it means to be alive and the purpose of existence.

Christos Stergioglou delivers a powerful performance as Antonis, effortlessly conveying the character's frustration, confusion, and desperation. Maria Kallimani and Giorgos Souxes also deliver solid performances as Antonis' wife and coworker, respectively.

The film's direction is masterful, with director Elina Psykou creating a disorienting atmosphere that perfectly captures Antonis' sense of bewilderment. The use of repetition adds to the feeling of being trapped in a never-ending loop, and the cinematography effectively communicates Antonis' feeling of being stuck in a static world.

Overall, The Eternal Return of Antonis Paraskevas is a thought-provoking and compelling movie that offers a unique take on the time-loop genre. It's a must-watch for fans of existentialist cinema and anyone who enjoys stories that challenge our understanding of reality.

The Eternal Return of Antonis Paraskevas is a 2013 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7.
