One of the best Greek comedies in years
9 May 2002 | by akillizSee all my reviews

When I got this movie on video I didn't know anything about it. I hadn't even seen Smaragda Karidi before(and yes she is a knock-out)! I was very pleasantly surprised straight from the start. The movie doesn't take long to suck you in. It's fast, very funny, intelligent and very well directed (although I have the suspicion that the good direction comes from Giorgos Lanthimos and not Mr. Lazopoulos who as a director hasn't showed as any exceptional samples before...). The movie feels and looks more European with great photography and camera work. Sure, the theme (love, friendship, disloyalty)isn't going to get an award for originality but it has some really original scenes in it. Having said that the plot is quite unpredictable and full of clever dialogues.

The relationship between the two best friends and their wives is depicted brilliantly, the acting from the main characters is flawless and the whole film will give you an hour and a half of pure entertainment.

I'm not a big fan of Greek cinema and I think that most Greek films fall into two big categories, the(so called) sophisticated dramas and the TV-like silly comedies(see 'safe sex', the Greek American pie-for 30-40something Greeks). This film, although still a comedy, there is no way you can describe it as silly. For me personally it's the best Greek movie I saw in years. No deep hidden meanings, no nonsense. Just what I needed for the evening. Pure fun.
