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 .
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.
Funny, genuine, amazing acting. I've watched it countless times and I'm
sure I will never get tired of it. Mirkas Papakonstantinou and Anna
Panagiotopoulou's performances are brilliant. The depiction of the
culture during the different historical eras in Greece is fun and
accurate. The humour and parody of the old Greek cinema is genuine and
hilarious. Unfortunately in order to fully appreciate this movie
someone must be familiar with the Greek cinema of the 60's 70's and
also have a good knowledge of the Greek language as some the jokes are
hard to grasp if you are not a native. Still anyone can have a fun time
watching it and I highly recommend it!
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.
This thing is just OK only to watch it on a Friday night with your
bored-to-death mates (that's what I did yesterday). I laughed to tears
in some scenes taking the p*** of the 1950s-1970s Greek films but:
These laughs are not the effect of a genuine or sensitive humour but rather similar to a reaction when someone farts. This is not really cinema, just a sequence of TV-style gangs we watch every year in the Xmas programmes. My three (out of ten) is the mark that this "film" deserves ;-)
Two years ago I was bit harsh to all the good people of Greek TV-Washing Machine so I repeat it: this thing is easy to watch and you laugh with it but after you watch it you feel an emptiness, a gap; it's the intellectual deficit of modern Greece.
