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.
