Genius concept, whoever thought of this is a genius.
12 April 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I laughed the whole time while there was a tragic element into it. Like the old Greek tragedies. It was about time for someone to come out with a movie like this and remind a society like the Greek one that is time to wake up and be with the rest of the world. No wonder it was the best seller movie of the year, everyone went to see it including the closeted cases with their wives. A culture moves a step forward with bold moves like this like releasing such movies. The acting could have been better but the reality is this movie hit the nail in the had. Had the people talking about what is normal after all. Therefore this movie is groundbreaking, i highly recommend it. In Canada where i live gay coouples can marry, adopt children, go to the supermarket holding hands,talk to the kids' teacher and this is normal. It is time for Greece to move to that direction as well. A democratic society goes ahead not with the things that devides us, but with the things that unite us. Kudos to the ceators of the movie.
