First Time Godfather

Synopsis: Brought up in California, offspring of an important political family, 11 year old Alex travels to Crete in order to baptize the baby child of a local cacique and parliamentary candidate. He will be a GODFATHER FOR THE FIRST TIME in order to prove to everybody and mainly to his father that he is a worthy son. His foreign looks, his difficulty with Greek language, the Cretan's particularities and the tests he has to go through in order to be accepted as a worthy son of the Leader, create a comedy with a political background, existential distresses and tragicomic situations. His first baptism-initiation in the art and tricks of politics will mark him for the rest of his life.

With both hands. Damnit!

Ls this music?

Are you joining the other side?

I'll make a man out of

you yet, like it or not!

Let's go on.

Whatever they offer, you eat.

Eat, eat, and don't ask.

Would my father do that?

And a lot more!

He'd chortle it all down!

That way we get

the women on our side.

Don't you know what they do?

Their husband asks them to vote

for one party, they say "yes"...

...and then secretly

they vote for another.

That's why we'll bring them

with us, one by one.

And say:

"My compliments to the chef."

My compliments to the chef.

Good, come here, my trinket.

You should have been my son.

Now, the men will

ask you to do things.

Things, don't worry, favours.

They're helping us

to bring democracy...

...and we help with their stuff.

Their problems. You see, son?

If they ask for electricity,

you say "electricity".

If they ask for a phone line,

you say a "phone".

If they ask for a road,

you say "yes! The road!"

You say "yes" to everything.

Would my father do that?

That, and much more!

- Leave the boy alone.

- I'll set you straight!

- You're only making it worse.

- Not a word!

Come here, damn it! What are you

doing? Damn your father!

Here's the Godfather!

Hold the baby, she wants you.

Aren't you her Godfather?

Are you afraid of dropping her?

If you want to practice,

you can lift me, it's fine.

- See, your dumb son again!

- Why, sweetheart, why?

Shouldn't you say something?

Something of your own?

You can't be a politician

and a mute.

The boy knows how to speak.

Say something that

your father says.

Long live demo-cre-cy.

Oh, mother of god!

Demo-cre-cy!

Crete's democracy! Cool!

Shut up, you're

confusing Mr. Alex.

Boy!

Long live demo-cra-cy!

Demo-cre-cy.

Mother of god!

Democra-cra...

Cra! Cra! Cra!
