Great performances and great direction
22 December 1999 | by umi-3See all my reviews

It's always a pleasure to watch this movie... Everything is so well done! The acting is superb by everyone, especially by Konstadaras and Papayannopoulos... I've looked so hard to find mistakes, hints that those people are actually acting and not talking to each other as they would in real life, but I haven't found anything... It's really amazing, and at the same time a little depressing that such movies don't get made nowadays... The plot is very clever, it makes you laugh and at the same time it makes you think about politics, politicians and corruption... Such a delicate subject "served" in such a clever way...

Amazing is all that comes to mind when I think of this film... Too bad that Greek films are not so popular abroad...
