EUFF Review: Breezy, Feel-Good Comedy / Grade B
26 November 2020 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

Smuggling Hendrix constantly brought a smile to my face even though it narrates like any other adventure film where ordinary people get together for a common goal. I think it is my first viewing of a film from Cyprus, which would justify why I couldn't gather the whole context of the Cyprus problem (while watching it). And yet, this breezy comedy with peppy music and some really funny dialogue delivery made my day. Sometimes when you are dealing with a problem, see if you can find a solution if you don't consider it a problem at all. That's what Smuggling Hendrix conveys and I love it. Recommended. Grade B.

(Watched at the 2020 European Union Film Festival of India (EUFF).)
