This is the stuff that legends are made of. This movie is so tragic that I feel like crying even though the last time I watched it was 10 years ago. The acting is simply superb. Panos Mixalopulos's finest moments. The prison scene where drug deprivation starts affecting him is just unmissable. All through the movie, he gets these flashbacks of himself riding a motorcycle and becoming a competitive rider. Amazing storytelling. The photography is truly spectacular. You'll get to visit exotic locations like the Greece-Turkey border and the customs office. You'll get to watch amazing action/chase sequences between the cops and Mixalopulos' motorbike. Steve McQueen would surely approve, this movie makes Bullit look feeble.Two thumbs up, another amazing effort by Dalianidis, the best comedy maker of modern cinema.
