''Aristophanian'' humour by a prominent Hellenic Director
Two thumbs up for this excellent movie. Gives a breath of freshness in an ageing and tired movie genre. Its major succes beyond the Greek boarders (namelly Australia, Germany and Zimbabwe SA) is a clear indication of its transcultural appeal.
A ''must see'' on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Will most definitely put a smile on your face.
