Genuine Greek characters, genuine Greek laughter!
16 April 2001 | by (Athens,Greece) – See all my reviews

Probably one of the best Greek movies ever made! The characters seen and developed in the film are so typical Greeks so it is inevitable not to see yourself in one of them, especially if you are a Greek!

The dialogues themselves even though they are very well studied and carefully selected come very naturally and seem very alive. Especially with the magnificent and all time classic acting of Costas Hajihristos and the huge support he gets by all of the other actors in making Zikos (the main character) one of the best characters presented in Greek silver screens. Every single quote, every single word that comes out of Zikos and the way he interacts with the other characters are simply remarkable and unmatched even by the best world famous comedians of our time! A movie that amuses you the first time you see it and then makes you admire it as you see it over and over again and finally you are just amazed by the enormous talent of Hajihristos and the fast paced dialogues! A masterpiece!
