From IMDb: “Costi leads a peaceful life. At night he likes to read his 6-year-old son stories, to help him sleep. Their favourite is Robin Hood. Costi sees himself as the hero – righter of wrongs and defender of the oppressed. One evening, his neighbour pays him an unexpected visit and shares a secret: there’s treasure buried in his grandparents’ garden, he’s sure of it. If Costi will hire a metal detector to help locate it, he’ll give him half of whatever they get. Skeptical at first, in the end Costi can’t resist. He’s on board. The two accomplices have one weekend to locate the loot. Despite every obstacle in their path, Costi refuses to be discouraged. For his wife and son, he’s a real hero – nothing and no one are going to stop him.”

Poster Rating: C- / D

Review: (#1) A badly Photoshopped ad that may highlight some elements of the film’s plot, it doesn’t seem like the kind of poster that draws people to the theater. (#2) Even less appealing is this unnecessarily simplistic face shot with zero connection to the plot and no sense of presence.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: Even with the subtitles, some of which pass too quickly to catch, the premise doesn’t seem that engaging and its purpose is vague. The suggestion is there that it has a surprising end, but will the audience care enough to want to sit what this trailer promises?
