Storyline

Chariton Ulianov has one great love: Life! That particular love affair however does not hamper him in his pursuit of enjoyment of her simpler pleasures. For him every woman is beautiful, every wine is superior when shared with good company and every situation an opportunity for good humor. His position as School Master in a small provincial town on the island of Corfu gives him the opportunity to disseminate his own unique philosophy especially to the students that participate in his greatest passion: the choir. His tender and playful outlook on life is an inspiration to his students who find themselves facing all the challenges of adolescence in a Greece which is facing the challenges of life under dictatorship. His best student in and out of the classroom is Gregory Ipsilantis, a talented youth who is just discovering love and all of the accompanying "sweet mysteries of life".

good
29 November 2006 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

this was a good film when i saw it. it made me feel like i was watching an old Greek film. the acting was good and the story line was good and the directing was mediocre. the architecture was a amazing, it was beautifully built but it was also simple. the score was also great it made the film take a nice rhythm. the film was a good fun experience and i throughly enjoyed it. if maybe the film was a little bit more deep and had more of a revolving story and maybe if it was little bit more clearer than i thought it would have a been a really great film. it should go down as a success and hopefully we will get some good Greek films in the future.
