A combination of twins, cloning and Prince and Pauper
This film along with "Νήσος"/"Island" are the main cards for Greek commercial comedy this season. They contain both actors and lifestyle celebrities/models and target the mainstream public, while they include some edges for the more sophisticated.
In this film which takes place in New York and a village in the vicinity of Karditsa, a provincial town of central Greece- the two main characters, whose appearance is identical, seek their private professional and sentimental goals while their fates intersect.
Chance, sentimental complications,issues of locality and class, organized crime and modern science are blended in a merry-go-round satire of modern "Greek" reality which touches lightheartedly many not so light in themselves issues and resolves in a conciliatory happy end.
If only those quandaries could be solved that easily in real life! The actors, TV and film actors of the national star-system support their flat and sometimes caricatured roles with ability. There is a combination of trash magazine culture and bucolic romance in the movie which may sound contradictory by definition but works well in practice.
