Leonidas Petrohilos, Director of the Naval Academy, is a strict and difficult widower with three sons. At home there is total chaos, until the moment he hires a housekeeper Mrs. Mary, who will "put them in order". Eventually, however, her true motivation is revealed and then everything changes ... A classic film for relations 60s. O Striglos pou egine arnaki benefits from terrific perfomances by both Konstantaras but also Kontou but it's also full of humor, heart and a great mix of both of those things that back in the 60's greek cinema worked. (10/10)
