A satire of life in modern Greece, presented through a series of different stories about sex. We see several couples and their relation with sex in parallel stories that come together in a hilarious way as the film progresses.
This is the story of two Greek families, named Delafrangas and Bisbikides. The former family is very wealthy & lucky, the latter very poor and continually struck by fate. Poor but honest ... See full summary »
Plot: A middle-aged businessman, who is a hopeless womanizer, ends up in all kinds of troubles because of his current or past flirts.
You'll love Ekeines Kai Ego if: You want one of the best comedy sitcoms in existence and if you like Giannis Bezos, one of the best actors that have walked on this little pale blue dot. 10 minutes from any episode of Ekeines Kai Ego is 100 times better than any universally known sitcom, whether that's Friends, Married With Children, etc. The plot of all episodes is relatively simple. Doganos meats a woman from his past who usually gets him entangled in various situations. However the overall design of the whole series is great, with wonderful characters, each one with its own special characteristics and all portrayed by great actors. The whole thing though is based in the main character and we're very lucky that this guy is played by Giannis Bezos who literally "carries the whole thing on his back". The series is full of great quotes, perfect comedic timing and wonderful acting by actual comedic actors unlike most "modern" Greek series. I pity you folks I pity you because you know Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller, Robin Williams and so on, but you don't know Giannis Bezos a real comedian! Finally Bezos is also a great singer, who loves quality music and because of that each episode has one or two music breaks, that unlike most movies\series were music is used just as a filler here it enhances the whole thing since it seamlessly blends music and comedy.
You'll hate Ekeines Kai Ego if: well to say the truth there aren't many bad things to say about this particular series. There are only two I can think of and they are not so important. The first is that each episode follows the same concept and the second that some of the actresses that play Doganos' past flirts lack charisma, although most of them are very good.
FINAL VERDICT: One Of The Best Sitcoms Of All Time (9/10)
[+] Extremely funny. Great characters portrayed by great actors. Giannis Bezos at his best! Great music breaks
[-] The same concept over and over. Learn Greek!!!
