Marvellous and hails back to when films tell a simple story beautifully.

A very well produced and directed short-film with excellent actors. Hails back to when films told a simple story beautifully. In every scene not a moment is wasted. Markou is a director to watch especially skilled in realistic, kitchen-sink drama. His debut 'Papadopoulos & Sons' is a wonderful little film. If you like a 'comic-book-cgi' this is not the film for you - however if you value Quality and a good story you will love and appreciate this little gem of a film.
