Storyline

On the brink of the new millennium, against the backdrop of the hectic Athenian metropolis before the uncertain prospect of a brave new world, seemingly unrelated stories of sex, and the lack of it, become inextricably intertwined. Pivoting around the complex and timeless subject of human relationships and the delicate intricacies of sexual desire, unsuspecting, and utterly unprotected, characters--ranging from repressed housewives to insecure careerists to gay-curious straight men--become entangled in one big erotic mess with unforeseen complications. Sex is everywhere, and through the magnifying glass of intimacy's dazzling kaleidoscope, there's always a little bit of something for everyone. Under those steamy circumstances, is there such a thing as "Safe Sex"? Written by Nick Riganas

Even better than sex!
24 December 1999 | by Owl-14See all my reviews

A movie that could really make a worldwide blockbuster if it is translated or subtitled. A really smart and intelligent use of the meaning of "safe sex". A must see for all Greeks, and an interesting point of view of the modern greek way of life. Even funnier than "Pedal Douce"
