Storyline

A young gay man in Athens, Angelo, keeps his sexual identity a secret from his family. He falls hard for a rough sailor, Mikhalis, and moves in with him. Mikhalis convinces Angelo to dress in drag and work a corner with other transvestites. With the money, Mikhalis buys a fancy motorcycle and hangs out in bars. By day, Angelo is in the army; at night, he whores. At Christmas, he visits his grandmother, and we learn that she and his mother were also prostitutes. A crisis ensues when neighborhood men beat up Angelo: his family is informed, the army discharges him, and his father goes crazy. Then Mikhalis wants Angelo gone. What will the young man do?

I'm ashamed of my country's 80's movie productions...
14 February 2005 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I totally agree with the previous post.I watched the movie yesterday with my girlfriend and we both agree it was a total waste of time! It was garbage, to say the least!

First of all, the script was SO badly written! The dialogues are pompous and totally unreal.The main character is one of the most passive characters I've ever seen portrayed in a film. Apart from the final solution, his actions are never explained on a serious basis.

Then it's the pace of the movie. I mean it's the directors choice but I find that he sticks with certain scenes without reason and he fast forwards whenever he should be explaining the characters, their actions etc.

But the most frustrating fact about the movie I find it's the main character's acting performed by Maniatis.It is a very demanding role and he is bad enough to make the movie even worse than the script has destined it to be..

Other bummers are the sometimes unnecessary nudity scenes, the down-to-the-ground-LOW production "values" and the frequently asychronized dubbed dialogues.

A VERY BAD MOVIE, IN TOTAL! (and this is a Greek viewer's piece of mind..)

"Whatever! I'll do what I want!" -Eric Cartman, South Park.
