Just art!
23 November 2011 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

After viewing this movie, it will be impossible to believe that what you just saw was merely a number of actors playing their role for a film. Instead, you get the impression that those people were actually leaving there and those were the lives they led. I believe that this is pure art! No need to invest a fortune for an impressive production as long as there are highly skilled actors and directors who do an excellent job of letting you enter the magic world of the movie and share their experience. The underground atmosphere is depicted in an excellent even nostalgic way. The music is captivating. Tzeni Karezi will always remain in Greek people's hearts no matter how many years will pass. If you really love the art of pure cinematography your shouldn't miss this movie.
