A good film
This is an excellent film, political and well crafted, concerning a crucial time in modern Greek history, the post-Civil War era and the intrusive US presence in the political life of Greece. Granted, the communist threat was still ever-present in the Greek psyche but the US Ambassador and the Pentagon's presence in Greek political life, and the influence the US Embassy wielded on the government and the Palace is well handled. The acting is controlled and not excessive as is usual in Greek films and except for the opening vignettes of police actions against the Greek leftists and their suffering on the prison IsIand (perhaps Makronissos) is convincing.
