| best Greek film I have seen
What an amazing film. I must admit that I haven't seen many of the Great Greek films, but out of ones I have seen this is by far the best. The music is truly outstanding and adds more tension to the carefully shot scenes of the film. Eliopoulos is superb as the "Drakos". He gives the best performance I have seen from a Greek actor (havent seen many of the Horn movies though). Besides the very good story, which would stand fine on its own, there are some very political and allegoric messages allover the film which give an extra depth to the film. Also, some of the scenes are mesmerizing (ie the scene in the beginning of the film and at the end). I would definitely recommend this film to Greeks and foreign people as well.
