Love it
13 April 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I wish I could see this again. I actually memorized a song from this movie after seeing it only one time. A wonderful musical again offering the best actors of Greece in that era. A fun musical with lots of different story lines, one being of a young man who visits a little island where one of the girls falls for him but to him she is just a little too hickish. Well watch out because she turns out to be just what he was looking for. It's been a long time since I've seen this movie and I would love for it to be re-released again. I believe it's in color and is just a lot of fun. The director of this movie from what I can tell on his list has directed some of the best and most well know motion pictures and I've literally seen all of them and they are wonderful.
