"Braveness is a privilege; either of the very rich or of the hungry."
A film with meaning, showing the small and unimportant lives of ordinary people in Greece in the 60's, and a man's longing for something greater. The hero's life is changed forever when he meets Maria, a teacher who spends her free evenings teaching uneducated workers in order to improve their lives. She thinks the first step to correcting the situation in Greece (where at the time, as she says, 47% of adults didn't finish primary school) is education for all. Dimitris, the main character, finds meaning in their relationship and the way she sees things. A really good film with beautiful scenes, dialogue and music, that once got censored by the Greek junta.
