6 November 2017 | by TarsitiusSee all my reviews

There are films with a bad screenplay, but good techniques. And films with a good screenplay, but with bad techniques. This film features a mediocre script combined with lousy technique:

  • the ubiquitous soundtrack (Vivaldi's Four Seasons) was not coincident with any scene. Even not with series of scenes, because that music was played across several scenes of quite different type. I would have liked to hear more Greek traditional music, especially when a corresponding landscape was shown. Seems that the director just wanted to impress with that impressive music, but to the expert, that does not work.


  • in landscape scenes, the immediate foreground was hardly seen, an average of 40% was dedicated to the blurry sky. So the spectator had the tendency to interpret what was invisible under the knees of the actors.


  • connected to that: the bad picture quality, too blurred. A pity, especially when nice landscapes were shown.


  • helpless inspectors: always in a thick uniform (is it never hot in Greece?), the rifle always hanging down by the side of the shoulder or in the hand. Not a good image especially when running through the bushes.


  • some animal inhumanity: indispensable in a film from the South from before 2000. Dogs kidnapped or shot, cats screaming, donkeys overcharged by two overweight inspectors.
