The movie and Yannis Diamantis
9 May 2005 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Well I'm writing my comments 11 days after Yannis Diamanti's death. I really liked the movie as the plot is the fact of our real life. The action is great and the most I liked is Acropolis being burned. You have to see the movie, I'm sure u'll love it... Yannis was a great actor and friend. He really loved acting so I think you have to see the movie to see his acting. He was a member in Greek Theatre of Deaf for about 10 years. Sea took him away from us. He was an candidate of second men's role. Once he said "The voice for me is not the basic element, I express itself through the sign language as there exist also other worlds and realities except what they hear and speak. As, for example, the world of hearing impaired which I want also to express." Rest in Peace beloved Yanni.
