The best Greek comedy film ever .
27 December 2001 | by (Larnaca, Cyprus) – See all my reviews

I've seen it 5 times until now and i intend to watch it again and again because every time i see it i discover new things . It is very clever and very funny and all the players give their best and the roles are as if are written just for them. One of the reasons i liked it most is the music and the songs written by Afroditi Manou one of the most talented song writers and singers in Greece now .

I'm sure that everyone who sees this film likes it (at least laughs a lot) i can say that because i went with friends of different tastes every time i have seen the film .
