I watched this film over 15 years after it was made (in a classic Greek cinema festival), but I knew the credit song as long as I could remember. The movie is a hymn to innocence and we all (a banch of teenagers, we truly enjoyed it then. Actually, I would if I ever watch it again. It wasn't a coincidence that it was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film.
The leading actress was OK and Voglis is very good and likable (the least) in his portrayal of the naive shepherd. Until then I only knew him from his more "mature" roles where he seldom played nice guys, so this was a pleasant surprise. The "Stasou mygdala" scene has know a cult status in Greece and will make you laugh your heart out.
Still back on the opening song which is considered know a classic. You would feel the emotions described thru it even if you don't understand a word in Greek!!! Unfortunately, its legendary performer has recently passed away (RIP Maria Demetriades).
Watch this film to enjoy a good dose of easiness, Greek summer and innocence...
