Review

  • The movie's story starts a few days before the 21st of April of 1967, when a group of colonels initiated a military coup (junta) in Greece. The main character, a soldier (cinematographer in his profession), who served at the border line, is transfered to the army's movie center in Athens, where the first steps of greek television took place.

    While being close to his wife, kid and his friends (cinematographers as well, serving in the army's movie center), this guy (and his fellow men at arms) never stopped being under question from their senior officers for their "controversy" political beliefs (communism was a target back then).

    Even going through a hard time, even after the beginning of the coup, this team of soldiers go through numerous of funny situations, which I dont know if non-greek persons will appreciate in a the same degree as I (or any other Greek) have.

    Totally recommended movie... 9/10.
