Well,i have seen also other projects of Papakaliatis and i must admit that he is truly talented in cinematography,montage,directing,really sparkling up all hiς characters an always tend to create great and memorable films. In this movie is doing again the same,the beautiful same,he has great photography of Plaka Athens,an interesting story of parallel universes and also an original one,a speed directing with Hollywood touches just to remind us of how he likes to copy/paste the all American great romance movies,the bonus material for sure is the reference to an original and classical romance story,a great Greek comedy called "Well the woman to be afraid of man" which is a phrase from Orthodox Greek weddings. The two stars Kontou and Konstantinou really steals our hearts with their heart full performances. The only disadvantage i believe is,once more,the of papakaliatis to be also the start of ALL of his movies. Fail for sure cause finally he must understand that he is a terrible actor,a terrible one. He is real a great talent but really christoforos,go along with it,you can do everything and i personally respect you for that but YOU CAN NOT ACT. Never the less a great effort of Greek cinema,you have my 7 out of 10 which could be even higher if he not had the obsession of doing EVERYTHING in his movies. Watch it!
