Storyline

After the turbulent years of the Greek Junta, Greece was seeking an identity, and one way to accomplish this task was to develop its tourism. As a result, a new type of male was born, the archetypal Greek Lover or "Spear" who used to target young female tourists with the intention of a passionate one-night stand. With this in mind, the "Spears" came mainly from the petite bourgeoisie class, they only knew some broken English and they shared a very specific dress code. During this vivid documentary, we will meet a handful of those intrepid "Colossi of Love", such as Bruno, a love-making machine, John, owner of the legendary disco "Highway", George, aka "Cement", and Takis, a hot DJ. They were the indefatigable hunters of love, and they were proud of their achievements. Written by Nick Riganas
