Storyline

After decades of dedication to medical science, Dr Likourgos Bekos, a diligent medical doctor of the Greek public health and medical care system, finally gets his state pension. As a result, the good doctor makes the decision to move out of Athens to live in the beautiful but rugged Greek countryside, along with his wife, and his young daughter, Keti. But, there, in his wife's birthplace, modern science will soon come face to face with superstition and the old-fashioned village's beloved midwife, Calliope Moustaki, who proves to be a firm believer of the malevolent glare or the evil eye--and above all--a mighty adversary. However, things are bound to take a turn for the unexpected, as Dimitris, Calliope's charming medical student son, returns home. Will Keti ever notice him? Written by Nick Riganas

Lykourgos, a retired doctor, opens a clinic in his wife's village. There, he is faced with a midwife who blames the evil eye for everything. When her son comes to the village, he falls for the daughter of the doctor and changes everything. I Kyra mas, I mammi is another perfect example of great greek filmmaking but also terrific perfomances by everyone especially Papamichael and Makris alongside Vasilliadou. It's a film that has tested the edge of time and still to this day? Has enough heart, charm and of course humor for the entire family to see it. (10/10)
