20 February 2002 | by heinerinSee all my reviews

for those who really think greece is still marked only through ancient buildings and philosophy, will have to see this movie. dekapentavgoustos is representing living human beings with all of their emotions that are living in the recent greek society. is something unexpected for probably all those who perceived greece as something in the past. this movie will be a kind of update for some people, which is good.

the movie made me really content, seeing real personalities played by good actors, you can identify with immidiately!! a well thought play about human needs and desires.

all the best to this movie!!!!!!!! congratulations
