Filmed as a light-hearted comedy, but bound to inflame feminists!
Director Sakellarios has taken stars Vougiouklaki and Papamichael in order to try to repeat in this movie the success that he had in 1959 with "To Ksilo Vgike Apo Ton Paradeiso". The story revolves around a schoolgirl whose mind is more on romance than on her studies. She falls in love with a young surgeon and they marry, she foregoing her final year in high school in order to marry. She finds married life a little boring and unbeknownst to her husband she secretly goes back to school. He suspects her of infidelity and this gives rise to all sorts of comical situations. Needless to say that the film espouses traditional patriarchal roles as were current in Greece at the time. Watch out for a young Giorgos Kostadinou playing very well Lisa's private tutor! A good film with good performances from the leads, but curiously "deja-vu" after the 1959 success of "To Ksilo..." Maybe a sequel would have been better?
