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

are those guys for real?
9 January 2007 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

Who would ever think that Vouros and Petroheilos would be playing the role of......the punkies... Lezes is absolutely funny, Konstantinou makes you die laughing. But the coolest scene was the scene of a game of "chicken" between a tricycle and a Chessna plane, on the runway of the former Schinias airfield (now turned into the Olympic row-boat center). Or even the fat bodyguard who gets beat up all the time. "Today I'll work overtime"he quotes when his employer sends him to be pounded by a bunch of angry men for the second time in the day. Those lovable losers, end up doing the right thing , in the end....... and please the fat lady....all she has to say? "xeliiiiiiii"! Pleasant times during the Greek eighties
