Amazing! One of the best Greek comedies of all time!
21 November 2011 | by Stratis ValachisSee all my reviews

Funny, genuine, amazing acting. I've watched it countless times and I'm sure I will never get tired of it. Mirkas Papakonstantinou and Anna Panagiotopoulou's performances are brilliant. The depiction of the culture during the different historical eras in Greece is fun and accurate. The humour and parody of the old Greek cinema is genuine and hilarious. Unfortunately in order to fully appreciate this movie someone must be familiar with the Greek cinema of the 60's 70's and also have a good knowledge of the Greek language as some the jokes are hard to grasp if you are not a native. Still anyone can have a fun time watching it and I highly recommend it!

10/10!
