Storyline

This is the first feature film by Vassilis Tselemengos. The story is based on the novel written by Andreas Staikos. Damocles is a famous chef, whose cooking is no longer popular.

light and fun
9 February 2010 | by georgioskarpouzasSee all my reviews

I found this movie funny and it created a positive emotional situation to me after it's view. The two actors had physique and mannerisms that were congruent with their respective roles, one as a respectable chef, the other as a more popular cook of the merchant navy.

The actress who is mainly a model played a role that did not demand much speaking but rather sensuality and sexual innuendo in which she excelled. The girl who played the cook's sister was also notable.

The sexual scenes were playful and satisfying and the movie had a clever ending.

Light as the breeze.
