I cannot remember if I have seen a worse movie but be sure when I will watch one I will let you now about it. Even if this film won the Thessaloniki film festival award, it did not come without controversy as the public and critics alike disputed it. If you are a Cypriot you can't fail noticing the shift of accent and dialect from scene to scene for no valid reason. Also very cheap ending reminiscence of the beating of a Greek Cypriot (Tasos Isaak) which at the time it was a lot in the news with a pinch of Monty Python (at the place where Horaface knocks his tongue off). The scene at the sea with the horse near the end again reminds me of a video clip that accompanies Cypriot entries to the Eurovision Song Contest. I stayed to the end of the performance because I hoped that it will be so bad, that it will be good. Unfortunately this is not the `Invasion of the Killer Tomatoes'.
