Storyline

With dreams of a better future, the kind-hearted but maladroit jack-of-all-trades, Thanasis Birbilis, arrives in bustling Athens to find a decent job. Desirous of succeeding in the big city, Thanasis will leave no stone unturned in his search for employment; however, without any special skills, he is bound to fail. As a result, no profession is safe from the overzealous bumbler's successive monumental fiascos; be it an enthusiastic waiter at a tavern; a shamelessly biased boxing referee; a sleepy but creative pharmacist's assistant; an aspiring photographer, and finally, a lily-livered officer of the law. Will Thanasis ever prosper in the thorny Athenian urban jungle? Written by Nick Riganas

excellent
20 July 2006 | by giannisfountisSee all my reviews

One of his best movies, excellent acting and very very funny movie!!! He does different jobs in this movie, photographer (excellent) he had no idea how to take a photo (he tried to give a photo to a customer in which he was not in, offered an already taken picture to a family before starting picturing them), waiter in a restaurant he tried so much but the customers where very strange so he blew it, referee in a match (boxing)tried to help a villager who was very thin and he were counting very slowly for the knock out until all the crowd entered the arena and started punching him, chemist (excellent too) he didn't know what medicine to give and he started mixing medicines etc.
