When I left Greece, this film had already won the Greek Competition Award during the Thessaloniki Film Festival, but I didn't have the chance to see it. Two years later and in a country so far away from my motherland I had the opportunity to see this wonderful movie in a VCD version with chinese subtitles.
I recommend this movie to everyone, especially to people who lived, as children, in Greece during the post-war era till the end of the 70's. It will definitely remind them a lot of things from their childhood, something that this movie is aiming to do.
