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®

The Greek Amarcord
22 February 2005 | by srkisSee all my reviews

One beautiful film, something quite opposite to current Hollywood confection. In many moments it reminded me of yet another European masterpiece, Fellini's Amarcord, only this one showing a much more positive historical period, the sixties. The story is intriguing and logical, with many fine details. I must say that I knew almost nothing about Greek cinematography, therefore I was very much pleased with what I saw in this movie. The acting is brilliant (as it is in most European movies), so is the camera-work and other technical aspects. My recommendation to all true film lovers: a must see. Therefore, I give 10/10
