Exceptionally good
5 June 2003 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I never go to the cinema nowadays to watch a Greek film because most that are made are awful and all about sexual relationships.I don't like that.But when i saw the trailer for "To klama vgike apo ton paradeiso", I was surpised!It was very promising, so me and my friends went to see it.And it was indeed very good!It makes fun of old Greek films that are considered here classics and if you recognize them, the film is even funnier!I don't know if a non-Greek would like it as much.
