Storyline

Self-made businessman Harry Papadopoulos has got it all; a mansion house; awards and a super rich lifestyle. However, on the eve of a property deal of a lifetime, a financial crisis hits and the banks call in their huge loans. Harry and his family lose everything in an instant. Everything, except the dormant and forgotten Three Brothers Fish & Chip Shop half owned by Harry's larger than life brother Spiros who's been estranged from the family for years. With no alternative, Harry and his family, plant enthusiast James; fashion victim Katie; nerdy Theo and their loyal nanny Mrs. Parrington, are forced to pack their bags, leave their millionaire lifestyle and join 'Uncle Spiros' to live above the neglected Three Brothers chippie. Together they set about bringing the chip shop back to life under the suspicious gaze of the their old rival, Hassan, from the neighbouring Turkish kebab shop whose son has his own eyes on Katie. Each family member must come to terms with their new life in ... Written by Anonymous

This film should be available for all to see
4 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see Papadopoulos & Sons at a screening in London. I didn't know what to expect but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It made me laugh and cry because I developed a real emotional attachment to the family involved. Brilliantly written, directed, cast and acted; I cannot fault it.

Although the subject matter is particularly relevant in this financial climate, it would still be enjoyable and something anyone could relate to at any time.

All I can say is if you get the opportunity to see this film you should grab it. I hope Papa & Sons gets the success it deserves - after all 'Success is the joy you feel'
