Somewhat weak
24 October 2012 | by Der_SchnibblerSee all my reviews

Like other of Psaltis' films, the pretext for this comedy was a critique of 1980s Greece, this time unemployment.

The film begins with Psaltis ecstatic that he has finally got his university degree in hand. He skips home to show it off to his mother and then...finds himself unemployed. His mother insists he get married and have children so that he may receive state benefits but, wouldn't you know it, Stathis is in love with a girl who is engaged to a petty thief disguised as sensitive aesthete.

Unfortunately, this film is nowhere near as well made or well-paced as "Kamikaze, agapi mou" which came out three years earlier. The slapstick and dirty words of phrase for which Psaltis is known are there as always, but the story is just thin and weak. At times, the movie just drags.

Fans will enjoy it, but it's far from the quality of "Kamikaze, agapi mou" or "Vasika... kalispera sas."
