Did You Know?


After the series finale, creator/writer/actor of the series Giorgos Kapoutzidis admitted he was not very positive about the actress 'Smaragda Karidi' playing the role of Dalia. He had imagined the character of Dalia as a middle aged woman and was going to propose the role to actress Katia Dandoulaki, whom he is a fan of. When S. Karidi was finally cast for the role, Kapoutzidis had to make changes to the script so that the character of Dalia would be younger than originally planned. See more »

Sofia: That's got nothing to with it! He was your father's brother!
Theopoula: Your grandmother is right. He could have come to Athens, just like he went to Canada from Toronto!

Recently, i watched for the second time the whole of his series. I found myself equally fascinated by it as i was the first time, despite knowing the plot. This is by far the best series ever in the long suffering Greek television history. The series were hugely successful in Greece and i think that there were two reasons for that: first, a brilliant script that managed to match in equal balance carefully adapted measures of mystery, thriller, comedy and drama and secondly, exceptional performances from all concerned. The characters were lovable, sympathetic, but not perfect and perhaps that was the secret of success, that they were realistically human. The scriptwriter, George Kapoutzidis managed even to touch the bigger questions about Good and Evil, Life and Death, Friendship and Love, without ever losing the series lighter touch. Its a pity that the series were constricted only to Greek speaking audiences, undoubtedly they would have been equally appreciated in other countries. I give them whole-heartedly a 10 out of 10!
