Another excellent filmof Cacoyiannis Brilliant

Another film from filmmaker KAkKOGIANNIS He brought the Greek Cinema up from being mediocre and i have seen this film many times even when i was only 18 years old and ii have never forgotten it. This film was nominated for awards as was his other films He was a genius at his craft. The players are excellent not to mention the great singer Sofia Vembo who does sing two songs in the picture It is two bad that she only made just three films. She deserves much more credit than she gets here. Her recordings are heard on the 28th of October of each year which is a national holiday in Greece OXI day against the fascists who tried to conquer Greece. She made many recordings and her memory will endure forever. Again i recommend this film very highly.
