A simple movie, very entertaining.
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie a great example of the Greek character and also the nature surrounding it. The story is simple yet funny and very entertaining. Of course the movie is by Greeks for Greeks but I think with subtitles it can gain fans outside of Greece, except probably for the US where one will not be able to understand how a bunch of soldiers are dealing with a simple border incident in one of the most disputed parts of Greece. What is different here is that instead of the soldiers getting drunk and shooting everything that moves, they are getting romantically involved with their captives and entertain them while they are awaiting orders from their superiors.
