Zervos is clearly the most underrated Greek director. EVER. His fetish for the ridicule and his sharp commenting of Greek society (and especially the extreme left core of people from Exarheia square) are what makes him a living legend (along with his beard of course). There are some scenes in this film that are unforgettable, but I would like to point at the one where Konstantinos Tzoumas, as the crazy scientist, creates his manufactured pop band (prophetic bearing in mind the 'Pop Stars', 'Pop Idol' phenomenon) by putting walkmans in all of the bandmembers heads playing 'new wave'. The result of course is a disaster, and the whole film then takes off. Class!
