Storyline

Stefanos is a man at his 40's who has inherited a fortune from his mother's aunt. One day Manolis, his schoolmate, calls him and invites him to a party featuring an old friends' reunion. Surprised and delighted to hear his old friend's voice, Stefanos travels back in time, to his childhood and his youth, and remembers his extraordinary relationship with his cousin Marina, his best friend and first love. In a great long flashback, he remembers the utmost detail of his childhood, the family reunions, travels, acquaintances, and most importantly cousin Marina. By the coming of age, the dimension of the close friendship between Stefanos and Marina goes out of hand, and reaches its peak at a party when both are at their 20's. That party, that house, Marina... It won't be the last turn in Stefanos' life involving the very same trio... Written by Exiled Archangel®

A sweet reminder of my childhood
20 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

When I left Greece, this film had already won the Greek Competition Award during the Thessaloniki Film Festival, but I didn't have the chance to see it. Two years later and in a country so far away from my motherland I had the opportunity to see this wonderful movie in a VCD version with chinese subtitles.

I recommend this movie to everyone, especially to people who lived, as children, in Greece during the post-war era till the end of the 70's. It will definitely remind them a lot of things from their childhood, something that this movie is aiming to do.
