Twentysomething Victor, a former diving champion, now toils anonymously at a furniture factory and lives with his sick grandmother in a dreary seaside town. Distraught and alone after her death, he decides to spruce up her old car and drive to Germany to visit his long-estranged mother. En route, Victor meets Matthias, a talkative, inquisitive young German who persuades Victor to take him along. On the long drive north, Victor’s buttoned-down, uptight personality more than once clashes with the irrepressible, free-spirited Matthias. Soon enough, they find common emotional ground as their summer road trip takes unexpected turns into self-discovery, the meaning of family, and perhaps even love. Winner of the Audience Award at the Thessaloniki Film Festival, The Man with the Answers is the promising debut feature of Cypriot filmmaker Stylios Kammitsis.
