“Maestro”

A series that could be described as a “sensation,” to say the least. It left few people indifferent; either you loved it or you hated it. But what could be the reason for this?

An idyllic, small island, with crystal blue waters, where everything seems to be going smoothly. Each person upholds a specific image of propriety. Yet, no one knows what goes on behind the closed doors of every family. And suddenly… you might see… drug trafficking… abuse… domestic violence… homosexuality… Oops! Did Christoforos Papakaliatis touch on forbidden topics?! What is more challenging for the viewer? To consider that what they see might be happening behind their neighbor’s door or to have their perception of Greek culture shattered?

There’s a strong opinion that these things “don’t happen in reality.” But is that true? Could it be the fear of admitting and accepting that indeed, all these things are happening around us?

In a constantly changing world, where we rush to keep up with developments, surely it’s not in our best interest to close our eyes and deny reality. However, there, on this small island, everyone saw the signs but remained silent. It’s difficult to step out of your comfort zone and get involved in something “that doesn’t concern you.” But what if sometimes it’s necessary? How would you feel and what would you do if you were in the shoes of one of the protagonists?

How did you feel about what you witnessed?
