Storyline

Aristides Chavales, the kind-hearted headmaster and founder of the historical Chavale Lyceum, along with the estimable teachers of the institution find themselves in a predicament, as student and faculty tensions boil over. With each day being a battlefield because of the harmless, but nonetheless, naughty pranks and the pupils' totally inappropriate behaviour, the helpless instructors have no other choice but to stay calm, and above all, be patient, until the academic year is finally over. Hopefully, their troubles will be over by graduation; however, can the teachers make it until then? Written by Nick Riganas

A very good effort for the 80's
16 March 2005 | by sifounas106See all my reviews

Considering the era and the cultural situation of Greece at the time this movie got released I can only say that it is a very good effort overall. Many elements have a satirical meaning and a metaphor. Some of the jokes that the students put their teachers through are quite clever. To be honest I saw this movie when I was 16 years old and I remember that I laughed my eyes out watching it. It is good, honest humor and emits a light hearted approach on the high-school life. It is certainly not the best production movie, but, on the other hand leaves you with a smile on your face. Another point that is emphasized on the movie is the unity of friendship. A very good effort for it's time, a classic to me. Mind you, on the following years -the kingdom of VHS- this movie was imitated at least 10 times!!!
