Storyline

Little Tsatsiki, son of a single mother in Sweden, has never met his father, a Greek fisherman. Tsatsiki befriends a nice but straight-laced motorcycle policeman renting one of their rooms and decices he is the right guy for his mother, an amateur rock singer in love with her band's bass player. To take a break from all this romantic hassle it's time for a holiday trip, and Tsatsiki and his mother end up in the very same Greek village where Tsatsiki was conceived a decade earlier.

A joyful and warm movie.
1 November 1999 | by Jesus-28See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie about relations between a mother, her son and the mothers boyfriends. The movie also deals with childrens questions about who their parents are. Tsatsiki has never met his father because Tsatsikis mother got pregnant during a vacation week in Greece and never went back to tell the father that she carried his son.

The relations are seen trough Tsatsikis, an eleven year old boy, eyes. And he is very charming, but I do not think that he is representative for children of his age. The actors are good and it gives you a joyful feeling after you have seen it. If you like drama movies involving young actors this is the movie for you.
