An excellent film
27 January 2001 | by loukia12See all my reviews

One of the best Greek films ever. The mere fact that so many talented well-known actors manage to blend together so masterfully without any one overshadowing another, makes this film a wonderful example of how good classic films are made! A definite must-see for anyone who truly appreciates cinema.
