Bomber & Paganini

Bomber & Paganini

During a failed B and E that ended in a tragedy, Bombas loses his sight and Paganini gets paralyzed. Condemned to do everything together, the blind Bobas – a former boxer and drummer – pushes Paganini’s wheelchair through dodgy streets, while the paraplegic ex-violinist becomes his navigator. Waiting for a miracle to happen, they find themselves facing a golden opportunity: It seems that their former gang is planning a heist and Paganini devises a risky plan that will solve all their problems.

Nikos Perakis

Born in Alexandria, Egypt, in 1944 to Greek parents. He studied costume and stage design at the Munich Fine Arts Academy (1962–66) and worked as a set designer in minor theatrical and TV productions. After his military service (1966–69), in the “Armed Forces Television” unit, he re-emigrated and worked as a set, costume, and production designer for many notable productions in Germany and later in Greece. In 1971, he started writing, directing, and producing his own films, first in Germany and then in Greece, where he decided to settle in 2000.
