An excellent movie
30 November 2011 | by (Jounieh, Lebanon) – See all my reviews

This was the first time i watch a movie coming from Cyprus, and I must say it is a really good one. It is a story about circumstances and events that might happen to each and everyone of us. It is treated in a mature and convincing way that leaves you unable to criticize. This movie follows the story of a man who decides to come back to his homeland and his efforts to build his life again, surrounded by characters whom everyone of them has a story of his own, and all representing similar people that we all meet in our life. Fish n' chips is a drama, a comedy, a coming of age movie. It is a mix of several genres and you'll definitely be touched by the story about life, love, country, destiny and how you'll survive in this tough and always changing world.
