Scenes from Athens unfolds like a series of tableaux vivants about mutual observation, about peculiar perception. A contemplation of a stable imbalance, and of lose, tranquil and indefinable elements. Both the city of Athens and its citizens are on display. As we observe them, they also observe us and one another. Fascinating animals like supermarket consumers, a kiosk owner, clerks of an airport, a little receptionist of a large hotel silently occupy the frames of the film.
