A great movie for the 80s
13 February 2010 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This movie is really a dream-like sequence of the Athens nightlife (and lowlife) in a very perturbed of times, the start of the eighties. The absolute magnificence of the movie lies on the audio track. During the whole movie, the radio of the era is playing, as part of the plot, commenting on the feelings of the main characters. Apart from the classic rock references, which reveals the well common truth that Greece, even at the start of the eighties, was stuck to the late 60s in terms of the "rock sound" (Dylan, C.C.R. e.t.c.), you can hear the radio station of the American NATO base, which is responsible for the most sophisticated rock you could ever hear at that time (and up until '88, when it stopped broadcasting). Generally, the vibe of the movie is very representative of the times. The dialogs are genuine, the clothes, the hairstyles are classic. Through the eyes of Aris Retsos (Το Φάντασμα - nicknamed "The Phantom") you can really observe what was going on on Athens at the time. The gang that steals motorcycles, the bunch of kids that watch the dirty movies smoking' and mating', the scene at the teenage party (featuring "square" kids and "rockers" getting off on "I Was Made For Lovin' You", resemble to the most credible documentary. You really have to search for that movie.
