One of the best Greek films ever made
18 September 2001 | by (Thessaloniki, Greece) – See all my reviews

The story has to do with love, revolution, old ideas versus newer ones, conflict and finally a new world being created from the older one's ashes.

Vassilis Georgiadis was lucky enough to have a great script in his hand and a terrific cast to match it. I mostly liked the four protagonists: Nickos Kourkoulos as the rebellious, justice-adoring son who's not afraid to stand up against his family, Yiannis Voglis as his violent, tough brother, the GREAT Manos Katrakis as their wise but stubborn father and Mary Chronopoulou as Irene, a true feminist of the beginning of the 20th century. Also notice Notis Peryialis, the actor who plays the part of the only character of the story who really existed: Marinos Antypas The film was nominated for the Oscar of the Best Foreign movie. It's a pity it didn't win it...
