Greek village rivalry from a comic perspective
3 January 2012 | by george karpouzasSee all my reviews

This particular comedy which is similar to the preceding "I love Karditsa" is a movie which follows a pre-established pattern. Action is situated in Thessaly, the main agricultural region of Greece and the thin plot-the rivalry between two neighboring villages which both do not want a certain public utility located in their premises but in those of the village opposite, is a pretext for a satire on the political mores, petty egoisms, rustic language pronunciation and love lives of provincial Greeks. In that sense, it is a movie full of the most obvious and commonplace stereotypes one can imagine, intelligible to Greeks but lost to foreigners. It is prejudiced against the little people of the province and even more against their petty leaders. I can not say that the prejudice is totally unfounded but it is very far-fetched and not at all subtle. Nevertheless if you are Greek and have some familiarity with that environment it is sure that you will have some cheap but hearty laughs. And some of the ladies look attractive, those that do not succumb to the stereotype of the housewife. I may point out that the movie is prejudiced against gays also and the political message is somewhat naive. But I can not deny that it is really funny although in a crude way.
