Full of silent emotions !
22 July 2013 | by (Bologna) – See all my reviews

This movie is just perfect. It pictures the basic values of Greece and democracy, simplicity & emotional. The actors' eyes are full of words which can't be said, because they speak different languages. The soundtrack is quite melancholic and the Greek language with all its complexities, explain the most difficult emotions in a few words. The photography is also very good and depicts a Greece which is still alive till today. The end is quite unexpected. After watching this film, you will listen to your deep heart sayings and you will understand that SIMPLE EMOTIONS are the most EVOLUTIONARY.

P.S. Live your myth in Greece.
