Award-winning screenwiter-director Pavlos Tasios died today from cancer. Pavlos was a very dear friend and a top director of his generation. Actually in the top-3 along with Nikos Nikolaidis, and twice-nominated for Best Foreign Picture Oscar Vassilis Georgiadis.
....Pavlos wrote and directed many hits including "PARANGELIA" ("REQUEST FOR A SONG", 1980), about a night club slaughterfest-made it look and feel chilling like a Greek tragedy, that grossed 5 million euros in its first month of release (gross adjusted for inflation), starring his ex-wife poet-actress Kaerina Gogou, "VARY PEPONI" ("ΗEAVY MELON", 1977), "STIGMA" (1982) about a single mother with an autistic child and countless others.
He wrote, produce and directed close to twenty feature films and countless TV series.
