This is Greek comedy at its best as a group of excellent actors execute an excellent script. Middle aged Lalakis uses a business trip to Thessaloniki as an excuse to his much younger wife Popi in order to spend a romantic weekend with his chubby mistress Lolota. Yet things don't go as planned as the couple misses their train in a remote village where the local train officer keeps referring it as a major 'junction' (komvos). The train officer offers hospitality. Soon Lalakis is in for a big surprise to his mistress' bewilderment. A must see comedy, loaded with Greek idioms and hard to translate as is the case with humour, but Logothetidis delivers beyond words.
