I wasn't expecting much from this movie. I had heard a lot of positive comments from people who had seen it (some of them twice). Most of the recent Greek films that have come out were a total waste of my time. This one was different. It was funny in a continuous smile kind of way, but there were also moments were it totally cracked me up. The characters are diverse (with the gay soldier and the soldier from Crete producing some of the most hilarious moments). I also liked the fact that the movie tries in a very subtle way to convey certain messages (mainly that Greeks and Turks have more in common than they'd like to confess). I think people of Turkish descent will also find this movie enjoyable. All in all quite a good movie. It goes to show that you don't need special effects if you have good dialogues and scenario.
