One of the best Greek film ever!
19 December 2015 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

There are some Greek films that they could've been amongst the classic films, worldwide. And this film is one of them. I know why it isn't, but I think it's late to be now. Anyway, whoever is curious to watch it, I suggest it without a second thought!

There are too many things we can say about this masterpiece. But I am not going to write a whole book, so I have to choose some of them...

For starters, we have to examine the year of its release. It was the year of 1948! In this year, in Greece, were taking place a Civil War after WWII. And this film expresses the feelings of simple people who were tired of killing and fighting and bloodshed. From 1940, when Greece entered in the WWII, until 1949, the war was continuous! And the simple people craved for a peaceful life! And this film "spoke" on behalf of them! And its "words" were powerful.

The screenplays of its writers used to write comedy scenarios. (Alekos Sakellarios - Christos Giannakopoulos) The genre of this film, we can say, is comedy-drama, but first of all is a satirical film, with capital "s". Scenario is based on theatrical work of Sakellarios-Giannakopoulos. And it's modern, clever and innovative at the time of its release.

A man who's tired of endless bloodshed, first WWII and now Civil War, with Greeks kill Greeks, he thinks that Greeks did not learn their lesson about war (and its cruelty)... and one day they will be punished! So, he fells asleep, waiting the lunch, and his fear comes true. Germans are back! Actually the whole story is a dream of this man. Also, old days in Greece, people used to live in houses with common courtyard, this one is a "miniature" of the Greek society back then. There is a leftist man, there is a rightist man, there is a man who just wants peace e.t.c.

The starring actor was one of the best Greek comedians. Argyropoulos and he (Vassilis Logothetidis) were the gods of Greek comedians on theater. The first didn't make it on cinema and he starred on only one movie, but Logothetidis played on cinema until his death. This film looks like it was written for him! he seized the opportunity and his role was more than splendid! From now on, Greek considered him the best Greek comedian!

I think without Logothetidis the film wouldn't be the same, but the rest of crew was perfect, as well! We can see a very good performing from all of them, one by one! Direcation is perfect, cinematography and editing, too!

There is no even a single reason that that makes me to vote 8 or 9, I vote 10 out of 10! It is a masterpiece! I hope you will find a way to watch it, and you'll see...
