A wonderful sample of modern Greek cinema

The movie title refers to the title of a masterpiece music song (Synnefiasmeni Kuriaki in Greek), composed by a great Greek composer ''Vassilis Tsitsanis'', during the Second World War in Thessaloniki, Greece. The movie presents the harsh times just before and during the Second World War in Thessaloniki and the drama of the local people and the Jewish community through the eyes of this great ''Rembetiko'' composer. A number of talented Greek actors have participated to the movie that was directed by Manoussos Manoussakis, creating a good film worth watching...
