A sheer disappointment.
24 April 2001 | by cosm7xSee all my reviews

This movie was a disappointment. Lazopoulos has the Greek audience accustomed to higher quality movies than this with content that can be viewed and appreciated by different audiences, something like Simpsons.

In this movie, Lazopoulos fails to impress with a script that has appeared in a way or another many times in Hellenic cinema in the past four or five years. The movie is about relationships and although at times successfully points out interesting facts about the Greek society and the relationships present, it is an abused subject.

The acting is below average, with Kafetzopoulos playing the usual role taken from a well known greek TV Series. Lazopoulos performs well (as usually) with his distinctive style of the shy, introvert and smart greek person. He's good at it and loved exactly for that. But it ends up being boring and repetitive after a point.

Overall, the movie is not recommended. I can be thought as a set of jokes, slapped together in an evening and leaves you with a bitter feeling and a guilt for throwing away 2800 drachmas for the ticket.
