| A beautiful fairytale
What a beautiful fairytale! Although, nobody can believe the basic story, this is an enjoyable film. Helen Nathanail, more beautiful than ever, stars as a guide for a group of tourist. There she meets Tomas Fritch, a handsome blonde man. They fall in love. What she does not know, that we do know from the fist moment, is that T.F is a prince who came in Greece for a formal visit. I know...I know...It sounds silly. But the couple is wonderful, the music of Vaggelis Papathanasiou and Giannis Markopoulos excellent, the naivity of the script can be easily forgotten when you see the chemistry that they do have on the screen. You may say that it is the Greek Roman Holiday, and that the role of A.Hepburn is played now from a male star. It's very good. Not perfect, because the next day you will not remember a thing from that film, but it is sweet and naive, as we should be sometimes.
