i didn't expect it...nice!
4 March 2014 | by (athens) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie with very reservation and skepticism at first. then as i it continued i realized that, that was not a common light comedy. the script is good and very well composed. The majority of the actors are young and fresh with quality at playing. Most of all i liked it because it wasn't vulgar.it had a language that we are used to use in common life. The movie is not boring and keeps you till the very and in focus, not because of the bad language but with the story itself. It is highly recommended, you will enjoy it. Better than any average Hollywood light comedies out there.... p.s.: I don't like the Greek cinema nowadays but this movie is a step forward to Greek cinematography. Well done!
