Press

"A black, bleak, urgently contemporary film. The frantic, unsettling and intriguing record of a woman's journey, Syllas Tzoumerkas' charged personal diatribe against an economic system seemingly designed first to make people, and then to break them." - The Hollywood Reporter, Jonathan Holland

"Tzoumerkas directs each scene to its boiling point, resulting in montage sequences that stay in mind for long. Angeliki Papoulia, one of the most fearless European actresses, plays Maria without emergency breaks." - Der Spiegel, Oliver Koever

"Syllas Tzoumerkas talks about the state of a generation without allegorical detours. He goes straight to the Greek state of things, using the anger, frustration, the restlessness, the pain and the passion of the protagonist Maria with breathtaking speed." - Frankfurter Algemaine, P.Koerte

"With its passionate, impetuous, and revolting hero A Blast IS the Greek crisis." - Sueddeutrsche Zeitung, F. Goettler
