Storyline

Manos, a Greek school teacher, is forced to travel to Melbourne, Australia when the man who murdered his grandfather 57 years ago surfaces there. While the reluctant Manos is tutored in the art of revenge by old friend Stephanos, he also attempts to patch things up with his former fiance Nicki. Things get complicated though when the peaceful Manos learns that his volatile twin brother George has also come to town and is more than happy to carry out the vendetta.

a vendetta in Crete
13 May 2000 | by varkarisSee all my reviews

Lakis Lazopoulos gives a great performance in his debut to movies.He personifies the twin brothers of a Cretan village.The first-born brother has to revenge the killing of his grandfather though the other brother is the one who has the guts to do such a thing.Magnificent music by Mikis Theodorakis,unique scenery from Crete and amusing plot in Australia:these are the basic elements of the movie.Hilarious comedy mostly in English but enhanced with the perfect personality of the classical 'evil woman' of the Greek cinematography,viz. Tasso Kavvadia.The agony of the vendetta and the power of love form the basis for this well-conceived story.Rural life in contrast with the city mess of buildings create a solid ground to enjoy concepts of Greek tradition:hospitality,willingness to help('filotimo') and respect for women.Clever jokes and a warm hymn to friendship and love embellish the 2-hour story of human joy against pain and seclusion.
