I had my reservations in watching the film due to its low IMDb ratings, despite the interesting trailer and the successful theme song. Thank got I finally rented it and I was not the very least disappointed.
The major asset of the film is it's cast, since the leading stars (both virtually unknown) deliver brilliant performances (the chemistry is there), the very known journalist Themos Anastasiades makes a surprise appearance, Zeta Douka is as always pleasant and two widely known Greek comedians make cameo appearances. The bartender of "Kokkino Domatio" (the best Greek comedy series of the last years) appears as a mystery character (you find out at the end who he is).
The second asset is the picturesque scenery: the breathtaking Sifnos landscapes. While not one of the most known Greek islands, the film exhibits that its at least comparable with Myconos.
The characters and dialogue are very fresh, even if the story may be considered as typical for a romantic comedy: opposite characters, series of mishabs and mystery subplots to keep the interest.
If you love romantic comedies, this is your film!
