Πικρό ψωμί [Bitter bread] (1951)

Greek postwar neorealism feels similar to its italian predecessor and inspiration; not especially »realistic« but heartfelt, indignant, and at times clumsy. This particular example, supposedly the first ever, is about a poor family trying its best not to disintegrate while being tormented by hardships.

Emotional and endearing, but not in my book of social injustice.
