3 December 2001 | by (Alexandroupolis,Greece) – See all my reviews

This movie makes fun of all the stereotypes of the old greek drama films.It is hilarious if you have seen the original movies(which greek TV channels use again and again).And this parodies also has a detailed family tree of all main characters.It is one of the most interesting movies of the last few years in Greece.
