In WASTED YOUTH thematisieren die Regisseure Argyris Papadimitropoulos und Jan Vogel die aktuelle Krise in Athen. Der Zuschauer begegnet dabei zwei Hauptfiguren, dem jungen Skater Harris, der die meiste Zeit mit seinen Freunden verbringt und ziellos in den Tag hinein lebt und dem Polizeibeamten Vasilis, der darum kämpft, seine Familie ausreichend versorgen zu können. Beide Schicksale werden innerhalb des Films auf ungeahnte Weise zusammengeführt, während um sie herum Athen in der Krise versinkt. Inspiriert von den Ereignissen in der griechischen Hauptstadt Ende 2008 entstand ein wilder Vertreter der jungen und wütenden Generation des neuen griechischen Kinos, der auf dem New Yorker Filmfestival des griechischen Films mit dem Preis für den besten Spielfilm ausgezeichnet wurde.

WASTED YOUTH
During a hot summer in Athens, the lives of two protagonists unexpectedly cross paths: a passionate teenage skater and a policeman in his midlife crisis. 
It is a scorching summer in Athens. The two main characters in Wasted Youth begin an ordinary day. One of them, 16-year-old Harris, is a teenage skateboarder typical of boys of his age and like many of his friends. He spends his day hanging around, arguing with his dad, visiting his mother in hospital and partying in the evening.
The other protagonist, policeman Vasilis, is going through a difficult period in his life, and seems to get more tense as every minute of the day goes by. Not only does it look like he is experiencing a midlife crisis, he is also frustrated with his work and family life. This film is about the city of Athens: Vasilis is like this city, on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The paths of these two characters are destined to cross in quite an unfortunate way.
Formally, Wasted Youth is highly modern, young, dynamic cinema full of enjoyable modern music, and represents a true enrichment of contemporary European cinema. Inspired by true events, the authors have succeeded in recreating the atmosphere of the city: its unrest and tension, its colours, its heat. A fascinating portrait of Athens and its inhabitants, and a society in crisis.
