Excellent movie,
6 January 2010 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

It's an excellent movie with good performances from the actors and a lot of unforced funny moments. The fact that the movie should probably be characterized as a 13+ movie doesn't make it a bad movie, neither justifies a bad review. Perhaps it's the parents who should be more careful when bringing their children to the cinema and it's not the movie to blame. Not only is "Nisos" a pleasant movie to watch but also it is a meaningful one since it's main theme is the resemblance of the hypocrisy of the Greek society in the 21rst century while all of of the action takes place in one of the most beautiful Greek Islands, Sifnos. I undoubtedly recommend it!
