Fallen Heroes
17 December 1998 | by panvasioSee all my reviews

The "Fallen Heroes" goes best for a title in English.This is one

of the few greek films of the time talking about the real heroes of our society (ref.greek).The 70 years old character of the film is a retired officer of the greek army who lives with his family from a poor pension that he earned after fourty years of service.At that time a politician offers him an amount so his statue stands up at the center of th town with the term that he 'll be introduced as the member of the society who serves best the country.In the end everything saws that was a very good plan to gain some more money for the politician and he ends up with his old uniform but without boots...and honor!
