Product Description

Only when you lose everything do you find it all…

Harry Papadopoulos has got it all: a mansion house, awards and a super-rich lifestyle. But when a financial crisis hits, Harry and his family lose everything. Everything, except the dormant and forgotten Three Brothers Fish & Chip Shop half owned by Harry´s larger than life brother Spiros who's been estranged from the family for years.

With no alternative, Harry and his family are forced to pack their bags and reluctantly join `Uncle Spiros´ to live above the neglected Three Brothers chippie. Together they set about bringing the chip shop back to life under the suspicious gaze of their old rival, Hassan, from the neighbouring Turkish kebab shop whose son has his own eyes on Harry´s daughter, Katie.

As each family member comes to terms with their new life, Harry struggles to regain his lost business empire. But as the chip shop returns to life, old memories are stirred and Harry discovers that only when you lose everything can you be free to find it all.

Saw Papadopoulos twice in the cinema. Can't remember the last time I did that. Some reviews said it was too sweet and a bit predictable. But I found it familiar and heartwarming like good comfort food. All the performances were great. Never seen the actor who plays the crazy Greek brother before but I'm going to look for more films with Him. If you like good solid British comedy that makes you think and makes you happy Papa is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining family movie 20 May 2013
By adamski
Format:DVD
OK, I admit to a slight vested interest here, as I was introduced to the writer/director at the premiere, and have met up with him subsequently, but I was really impressed with the film, which I've now seen twice - once at the premiere, and a second time on a preview DVD... and here's the thing - I liked the film better the second time around, and think it really comes into its own on the small screen. Why is this? Well, I think it's to do with the smaller, more intimate scale of the family dynamic portrayed in the film. A family pulling together against the odds. I particularly liked the relationship between real-life son James Papadopolous (Frank Dillane), and father Harry (Stephen Dillane), capturing beautifully the uneasy ebbs and flows of teenage insecurity and fatherly need to connect.
As a film it wears its heart on its sleeve, and that might put some people off, but I'd say that if you want an evening in with some loveable characters, witty dialogue and some Greek love of life (I was about to say 'joie de vie' or 'chutzpah' - anyone know the Greek equivalent?), then this is definitely for you.
And how uncannily prescient the script was to capture a zeitgeist of our times in the theme of over-extended finances, Greek-style...

As a loyal Grecophile, I was immensely looking forward to "Papadopoulos & Sons" - and I wasn't disappointed.

Dillane makes a predictable transition from the arrogant 'have' businessman (who makes his disdain clear for the 'have not's' early on in the film) to the family man with values, and yet whilst predictable, the process is quality viewing.

Stoppard was excellently cast as the Accountant with no morals (you know of any that have?) with strong portrayals from all the cast.

A riches to rags tale with a very relevant modern day take. "Papadopoulos..." shows the true strength and hospitality of the Greek community in times of hardship.

Poignant, touching and whilst skirting on the 'cheesy,' I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to friends.

To call this film predictable is like saying the same of "Titanic" because you know the ship is going to sink. This film is a perfect example of how it can be as enjoyable to travel along a narrative as it is to reach its destination. Certain aspects of the film ARE predictable but no less enjoyable for that. Maybe you can guess that certain things will happen but watching the details being filled in as the narrative progresses is an absolute joy.

A film which has you leaving the cinema feeling this good about life in general is a gem and deserves its success. That said, there are many who will only discover it through the DVD release. They will not be disappointed.

One more thing: Ignore the error on the packaging. I am happy to say it IS 16:9 widescreen, not 4:3.

I saw this film at the cinema, then I went back and saw it again a couple of days later! It's a story about a guy who's on top of the world, loses everything and along the way to finding redemption reassesses what life's all about (with the help of his very charismatic and previously estranged brother). There's some great characters in there, and some brilliant acting. Some of the key scenes, like the one with the two brothers in the car, are perfectly paced and pack a real emotional punch. You can somehow tell the cast all had a great time making this film. The whole thing inspires a real warmth of feeling, and there are a few laugh out moments as well. There's a lovely life affirming message to it all. If you like gentle comedies with a real human dimension you will love this.

After following the film's journey from being filmed, right the way through to the cinema release, I FINALLY got to see it in November! I had been anticipating seeing this film before it even finished filming. It most definitely lived up to my expectations! Papa&Sons is such a sweet, funny movie with a killer cast! Really well written and made. Definitely something I'd watch again and again!! Great job Marcus Markou!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great feel good film 20 May 2013
By PXT
Format:DVD
Saw this at the cinema in London with family and friends. Great feel good film, I laughed, I cried, I laughed again and left the cinema with a smile on my face. I can see this being one of those films when your channel surfing you will always stop to watch - wooo-hooo for the independent film maker.
