strange, at last a great Greek film !!!
10 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

Nikolaidis is definitely a unique artist with vision, obsessions and all those sweet little (or big) things that can make a human a true artist.

The film's mentality is a bit Greek/mediterranean I suppose, but it think that won't prevent open-mind viewers from getting Nikolaidis point.

This quite big film (154 min) is a dialog based paranoia, mostly because of its surreal scenery, not in the matter of weird / surreal visuals but mainly because of photography, Athens superb 1983's landscapes, the "sweet bunch's" very unusual retro house-decoration and last but not least, the hilarious surreal dialogue & the humouristic element in various degrees.

Anyway, I am just writing here because yesterday I saw "Singapore Sling" another Nikolaidis classic which rocks, which is more known abroad, since I even saw comments from non-greeks here in IMDb. Since Singapore Sling has few but intensely positive reviews from non-greeks, you might as well want to check "Sweet bunch", so it might worth it trying to spot this, or any Nikolaidis picture for this matter. Just note that it doesn't get any close to Singapore Sling in matters of extremity or bold visuals, far from it...

Greek viewers will probably know this title. If you're not familiar with Nikolaidis, it's a nice place to start!
