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!
