However NANA finds a new love interest, when Dimitris moves to the building. Dimitris is a young, volatile man with no special talents.

what a waste of money......
13 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

OK, this is exactly the kind of "film" that gives Greek cinema a bad name. It is the director's first attempt in cinema (he has been directing TV serials since the 80s) and its clear from the very first moment that he is no Adrian Lynn. The film's hyper-glossy look makes you wonder if you are watching a movie or a TV commercial for some spaghetti sauce. The story is just TV bullshit- there is nothing special in it to warrant a theatrical release. That is exactly what Greek commercial cinema is today- TV movies that get released in theaters. Not to mention how expensive they are! What a waste of money.... such a shame. The cast also consists of television actors that are mostly talking nonsense and trying to look cool and sexy... This is not supposed to be exactly a comedy but the whole audience was laughing out loud during the screening... Its a shame that films like this are being made in this country.. And even more shameful is the fact that some people actually pay their hard-earned money to watch such crap.
