Alkis (Konstadinos Aspiotis), a small time crook on the run, has agreed to appear in a video in which he admits to having killed drug kingpin Forkou (Themis Panou) and acquits corrupt businessman Bezerianos (Christos Loulis) of all crimes because he has been promised by Bezerianos and his lawyer Ioanna (Mirto Alikaki) to be smuggled out of the country in return. But after he has shot the video - in a porn studio no less - he realizes it has been a set-up and pretty much everybody now wants to get rid of him, be it Forkou (who hasn't even been killed yet), Forkou's right hand man Daviti (Panos Koronis), who wants to take over from Forkou and is more than happy to have a scapegoat for that, Bezerianos and Ioanna, because the less people in the know the better, or Bezerianos right-hand man Petros (Makis Papadimitriou), who of course has his own agenda. Now Alkis, while by no means a fighting machine, is actually rather handy at using all sorts of things to his own advantage, including the props of the S&M room of the porn studio, but it becomes more and more apparent that despite all his ingenuity he's mostly dependent on his own luck to get out of the shit he has ultimately gotten himself into - but will his luck alone suffice to save him?

 

Do It Yourself is, above all else ... pure fun, really: Basically, the film's plot is a bit hard to follow with a few too many characters of equal importance, but the plot really takes backseat behind the film's sheer joy of storytelling, of throwing its protagonist into pretty impossible situations (that make sense in the film's narrative framework though) and letting him find a way out of them, and of playing with many a genre mainstay to rather unexpected results. And all of this is done in a very light-footed way, with the tongue constantly in cheek but never crossing over to just being moronic - making this one a real joy to watch!
