Greek islands v mainland Greece
21 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

This movie has been a huge commercial success in Greece having cut more tickets even than Avatar in a similar time-span.Critical response has been more mixed. My personal opinion is that the movie is fine although it has some scenes and language that can be offensive to minors. It strove to reproduce the Greek every-day vernacular which can be obscene relatively often. The actors and actresses are effective in their roles especially the two male leads playing the arch-villains, the mayor and the chief-constable. Zeta Douka has a very sexual persona in the character she portrays and Lambrogianni plays with subdued pathos a woman with a past. Best of all is Kastani in the role of the adopted protégé of the late notable. Although the movie is light, humorous and sexy it can live a sad taste because of the rotten character of the local notabilities it portrays and along with them of Greek provincial society.The locale of the Greek island is inspiring and this gives to the movie an edge over "I love Karditsa" another Greek comedy in many ways similar and in many ways different, which does not have the advantage of a Cyclades locale but the more drab and mundane locale of rural mainland Greece.
