one of the best comedies of the greek cinema's golden age
10 June 2002 | by (athena) – See all my reviews

Great actors, in first and second roles, and good dialogue is what made the greek sixties comedies so great, despite basic directing, and mostly standard plots and messages. Here we have Alekos Alexandrakis, as the jeune premier who must put order in the crazy family of his new capricious wife, jenny Karezi, whose dad (Dionysis Papagianopoulos)let's himself carried away by his wife's crazy whims (a delirious performance by Mary Aroni, in the films she is most remembered for).

i wonder how an unsuspected viewer would react to this movie.. for example to the blatantly traditionalist view of family. Let's say for exemple when Dionyssis Papagianopoulos, hits Mary Aroni and it turns out she likes it. Yet this movie is so funny... well if you seen it and aren't greek in origin let me know.
