In his first colour film, Thanasis Veggos looks at the ‘American Dream’ with all its hopes and bitter disappointments, as seen through the eyes of Greek immigrants.
A poor man has one purpose in life: to immigrate to America. But when that moment comes thanks to the help of a loyal friend and his fiancée, he gets sidetracked and all dreams of greater things fall through.
While not the most commercially successful of Veggos’ films, The Careless Idiot is notable for kickstarting a new chapter of his artistic development in psychological comedies.
