In the 2004 director's cut version, at about 52:13, you can see a boom mic in the frame for about seven seconds. Maria is in the back room undressing, while Babis is talking to her from the front room. The mic peeks out from behind the left wall and is visible in the doorway between the two rooms in the center of the screen. See more »

Considered to be one of the most powerful and emotional Greek movies, Rembetiko focuses on the life of an individual woman,a real person and through her personal story, it retells the story of Greece,from 1920 to 1955:the national disaster in Asia Minor,the one million refugees who came to Greece,the World War II,the Nazi occupation,the Civil War.The tragedy and the glory of a nation during the century.And all these bound with the music of rembetiko,the music of the outcasts.Great direction,great performances,great music.A voyage to history of the first half of the 20th century, but also a voyage to the origins of rembetiko.Realistic and dreamy.An original Greek epic.
