a nice surprise that very rarely comes from a Greek film!!!
31 March 2003 | by KGB-Greece-PatrasSee all my reviews

Let's face it: Greek cinema is really in medieval stage - even if movies tend to become much better the last years, that we are having a new wave of new and more modern filmmakers.

This brilliant film has great editing, camera-work, dialogs and great performances by all actors. If your are foreigner, take this as a different comedy which also works as a guide to Greek mentality and ENJOY. And check out also Nikolaidis films.

If you're Greek , you will have propably already seen it and formed your opinion. If not, this not the definite Lazopoulos as you know him from Deka mikroi mitsoi - still the film is great!!!

PS: The ending is a bit of a let-down...
