Greek WW2 drama about a Greek submarine at the time of the Italian invasion of Albania. It's mission is to seek & destroy Italian naval and supply ships in the Adriatic.
2 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Very weak plot and storyline. There are numerous repeated scenes (places being blown up, German Stuka dive-bombers archived material etc) and they have resorted to using scaled down models to depict underwater scenes. Movie on the whole was a boring and i struggled to remain focused to follow it.The continuity is not that great either as it jumps and starts AND the female singer has got a 70's hairstyle. This doesn't fit in with the 1940's storyline. But, if you just want to sit back, watch an old Greek classic and not have to think AT ALL about the plot, then this is perfect. On the positive side, there is a bit of music and dancing and some quick scenic shots of the sea and coast.
