Storyline

Brought up in California, offspring of an important political family, 11 year old Alex travels to Crete in order to baptize the baby child of a local cacique and parliamentary candidate. He will be a GODFATHER FOR THE FIRST TIME in order to prove to everybody and mainly to his father that he is a worthy son. His foreign looks, his difficulty with Greek language, the Cretan's particularities and the tests he has to go through in order to be accepted as a worthy son of the Leader, create a comedy with a political background, existential distresses and tragicomic situations. His first baptism-initiation in the art and tricks of politics will mark him for the rest of his life. Written by Anonymous

wonderful movie
15 September 2013 | by emiliord-792-864063See all my reviews

This is a movie outlining the Greek reality of the last two hundred years. Always a rival of two opposite parties ends up to a retreat of both parties under the influence of a brilliant (young) savior. The savior is in the beginning an inapt person who is enforced to go through an unusual process. Finally, the difficulties that copes with show the correct way. The young guy improvises a means to convince the two opponents by borrowing examples from real life. The movie is very well directed, and the scenery is amazing and representative of the Cretan nature. I really recommend this movie to everyone that cherishes some affection for Greece.
