Clarification
18 May 2001 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

In my previous comment, I wrote that the movie depicted rembetika clubs, but instead of "rembetika" I think the more appropriate word would have been "skiladika". Rembetika songs, which are like Greek blues, are very often sung by men and have become much more accepted as a legitimate music form. In skiladika clubs, however, women are the main attraction and usually its not for their extraordinary vocals.
