In Alvin’s Harmonious World of Opposites first time feature director Platon Theodoris has produced a film that is simultaneously intriguing and enjoyable, surreal and funny. He creates a story imbued with a magical realism world, a world that is seems familiar yet somehow becomes very, very different.
Alvin spends his days working as a Japanese translator, carefully creating the illusion of everyday normalcy to his friends, colleagues and to those around him. But then there’s the panda toys, the good-looking girl downstairs who Alvin spies upon but can’t summon the courage to talk to, the crazed and angry neighbour across the corridor, and the matter of something happening to his apartment….
With tensions in his life and home steadily building-up and his friends putting increasing pressure on him, Alvin may have to finally escape.
