Summer 1969. Dictatorship. In a small country town, young Achileas breaks his leg by falling off the yard wall of the local cinema. He wanted to see Brigit Bardo naked... However, during his visit to the city to treat his broken leg, for the first time in his life he sees a television! The program informs about the launching of Apollo to the moon. The idea of the launching becomes Achileas' obsession and along with his friends they collect money, in order to purchase a TV set. However, soon, the dilemma becomes imperative. Will they buy a television or "visit" all together Uranya in order to be taught the secrets of love? The situation gets even more complicated when the authorities arrest Achileas' father along with the father of a good friend in order to intimidate others: Spiros Agnew, who will visit Greece, intends to visit the small country town as well and so everything must show quiet and "friendly" to the regime...

Magnificent piece of Greek cinema
17 February 2007 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

My wife convinced me to go to our local Othellos cinema in Limassol to watch this movie. All I can say is that I was amazed by the quality of this picture. The direction, the casting, the nostalgic 60's atmosphere, the photography, the landscapes and even the special effects were all without precedent for a Greek movie. What really blew my mind though was the ending. Usually, Greek movies are a little weak in their endings but this was a crown achievement by my standards. Every single scene seems to have been shot with great care. you get the feeling that you're on a magic carpet ride right up to the climax and when you get there you wish the movie would not end. It proves that a well crafted story is all that is needed to create magic. I hope they make more like this one. Very well done!
