Storyline

Leonidas is tricked into thinking he will hit the jackpot by a guy from the underworld, Babis, also well-known on the street as "the teacher". So, he sets up an ad hoc gang with his close friends in order to rob a bank. The operation, however, is crowned by complete failure. Actually, Babis used Leonidas to create a diversion in order to rob a jeweler's shop. Leonidas flies into a rage and swears to take revenge on the "teacher". The scuffle that follows results in all of them ending up in hospital. Written by Greek Film Archive

A classic gang film
9 April 2003 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

This is definitely one of the most surreal cinematic experiences I have ever had. The characters are so one dimensional it's actually contributing to the cheap humour of the film. I would like to pay my respect to the excellent comic actor Markos Lezes, who in this film, outdoes himself for sheer quality of performance and humour of the English style. Excellent.
