Underrated film; Greek cinema at its best
Aliki Vougiouglaki plays a character who lost her hearing as a child and has no communication skills, until a teacher new to the area crosses her path and falls for her, teaching her how to sign.
If you want a Greek film that can bring you to tears, this film will do just that. A digitally remastered DVD print is available in Greece, and I say it is well worth having a copy. Don't accept imitations sourced from rotten old film to VHS, where the film is as shonky as a 1920s silent movie and the colour is overpowered by green emulsion. I researched about this by the way - colour film will degrade if not looked after properly.
The DVD also includes vital scenes not shown in the widely bootlegged VHS tape, cut possibly due to film erosion.
