Alex & Eve :- Watch Alex & Eve on Youtube on Fire, Director Peter Andrikidis (Wog Boy 2, Underbelly, East West 101) and writer Alex Lykos have achieved what many before them have failed at: they’ve delivered a humorous Australian multicultural love story that doesn’t buy into racial stereotypes. The film hit our cinemas yesterday. I think it’s going to be huge.Alex (Richard Brancatisano) is a Greek Orthodox school teacher, and Eve (Andrea Demetriades) is Lebanese Muslim lawyer; both were born in Australia, and living in Sydney. As a daughter of Greek-Cypriot migrants myself, we’re taught that while we can be friends with Muslims, the religious and political differences mean marriage is a no-go. But when Alex and Eve meet at a Sydney Harbour-side bar, both there with their Anglo friends, they instantly connect. The story starts from there. This film should not be dismissed as another My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the 2002 hit which offered big laughs at the expense of an accurate portrayal of the real challenges faced by the children of migrants. Alex and Eve, while maintaining humour throughout, does not shy away from the nuances of the pressure to conform, nor does it succumb to love story clichés; in fact, it nails the more complicated issues we deal with every day. Semi-autobiographical in nature, it explores interracial and interfaith dating within a wider Australian – or let’s say ‘Anglo’ – context; based on Lykos’ successful play, first staged in 2006, the screenplay cleverly weaves cultural politics into a comedic narrative, while also questioning the nature of love in all of its complexities.
