I love this movie. It includes an all star cast. These are some of the best actors of Greece. The story is dramatic. It is a story of love, betrayal and revenge. It is loosely based on the ancient play Electra because it has all of those elements. This is one of many movies that should be re-released and shown with English subtitles. I recommend it highly to persons that love foreign films, especially dramas and especially this one because it offers an excellent cast. All four protagonists are extremely famous and great actors. A must see for anyone who loves tragedies, dramatics, great acting and just plain old style love stories. This offers it all.
