Storyline

A gifted electrician, Michalis Karamanos works for OTE - Greek Telecommunications Organization and it seems that he is the only one who hasn't been completely absorbed by the corrupt and all-devouring system. Acting as a member of the revolutionary organization Constitutional Struggle, which is fighting against the unpopular policy of the government, he connects the computer of the director of OTE to an explosive device. He threatens to destroy the telecommunications of the country if he is not allowed to broadcast on television his revolutionary message during the broadcast of an important football game. The Authorities, thinking that he has gone crazy, try to bring him around using his old friends from the army, whom they pick up one by one as intermediaries. This is a situation comedy with excellent, mature plot development, plenty of suspense as well as masterful criticism of socio-political reality. Written by Greek Film Archive

One of the most political films of the new Greek cinematography.
6 July 2000 | by (Thessaloniki, Greece) – See all my reviews

One of the most political films of the new Greek cinematography. The heroes of the film `Loufa kai parallaghi' (1984) (privates conscripted in the Greek army during the dictatorship) are gathered after twenty years to prevent -either due to police coercion or to their own motives (sympathy, economic/political interests, just to have a laugh)- their ex-companion from carrying out his threat and blowing up the central building of the national communications organisation if he does not receive TV broadcasting time to address a revolutionary protest text against the public machine. The film constitutes a rather complete and to the point comment on the mechanisms of government indifference, covering-up and finally engulfing foreign elements; a bitter, well-structured satire, sarcastic and above all astonishingly modern due to its internationalist character. The film is far from limiting itself to a social critique based on the heroes of the previous film. It is an autonomous creation having a clear reason of existence, at least in respect to its thematic and structure. The aesthetics of the film is not something extraordinary (I should probably make an appeal to my poor knowledge on relative issues) but this does not impair the general impression that the film, as a narrative, leaves. Regarding the non-Greek viewers, it should be noted that all the facts that are necessary to comprehend the film (the film incorporates comedy elements, as well) and are relevant to the Greek reality of the 1980s (and even 1990s) are given by the film itself.
