Tassios is for me, one of the best Greek Filmmakers along with Vasilis Vafeas. He is very good at describing the inner part of the characters and he has outlined very good, Greek people. He use a "doc" style film-making, giving you the sense, that you are just watching something that is being filmed at the time you are seeing it. His characters are always in the middle of a world that they don't want to be or they don't fit. They have understand something that other people aren't able to do or they don't care to.Like in this film he explores what means to be with someone who don't love and to love someone who can't be with. I think for Greek cinema his themes were very different from what other "known" filmmakers were shooting at those days. And this is some greatness of an artist. To do things in other ways that separates you from the crowd.
