This is a wonderful movie about relations between a mother, her son and the mothers boyfriends. The movie also deals with childrens questions about who their parents are. Tsatsiki has never met his father because Tsatsikis mother got pregnant during a vacation week in Greece and never went back to tell the father that she carried his son.
The relations are seen trough Tsatsikis, an eleven year old boy, eyes. And he is very charming, but I do not think that he is representative for children of his age. The actors are good and it gives you a joyful feeling after you have seen it. If you like drama movies involving young actors this is the movie for you.
