An old classmate's invitation paves the way for a trip down memory lane, as an aerospace engineer still has the taste of love's first kiss in his mouth. But, thirty years since their passion-ridden embrace, so does his dear first cousin.
It's been nearly thirty long years since the passion-ridden gathering at a schoolmate's house, and an unexpected phone call by that same long-lost friend triggers a whirlwind of emotions, as the aerospace engineer, Stefanos Karouzos, finds himself taken by surprise. Unable to turn down his old classmate's warm invitation, Stefanos heads to the memory-laden place not knowing what to expect, as vivid flashbacks of an innocent childhood in 1960s-Greece pave the way for a sentimental trip down memory lane. But, surprisingly, Stefanos still has the taste of love's first kiss in his mouth--and even though she can't openly admit it--so does his dear first cousin, Marina. Back then, a chaste kiss marked the beginning of an impossible relationship. Now, the same peck on the lips is about to reunite two estranged cousins at the fascinating get-together. However, is Marina still having feelings for Stefanos?Written by
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.
