Still reluctant to marry the girl of his dreams and his long-term sweetheart, Voula, a kind-hearted brother, Alekos, needs to first give away in marriage his younger sister, Anna, before making his dream to walk down the aisle a reality. On the other hand, Voula's brother threatens to resort to extreme measures to finally see his sister married to her chosen one--while in the meantime--Anna, too, is having the same problems with Voula, as her hesitant lover, Antonis, is still unwilling to get married. But, when the two perfect strangers, Alekos and Antonis, meet, the latter will start sharing his knowledge and an infallible technique that guarantees excellent results--and above all--peace of mind. What is Antonis' mysterious recipe for liberty? Can both men stay single for as long as they like? Written by Nick Riganas

One of the best movies that I've seen
31 May 2001 | by timos321See all my reviews

A very funny, and at the same time bitingly satiric, view of Greece, Greeks and their morals. It has some extremely funny moments, e.g. the initial encounter between Iliopoulos and Vegos as well as the initial encounter between the Stratigos and Iliopoulos. Almost every frame is both funny and commenting on social mores. I would highly recommend it.
