An excellent movie!
An excellent comedy for Greek speakers. Chatzichristos was known among the Greek actors for his incredible ability to improvise; sometimes to such an extent that it was hard for his colleagues to follow up, especially on stage. "Tis Kakomoiras" gave him the opportunity to unfold his talent, since it is essentially a character comedy based on the leading role of Zikos, which he assumed. Zikos is a countryman who moves to the capital and there, among others, he falls in love with a young girl who lives in the same neighborhood. There are numerous funny scenes in the movie, but what really makes it such a successful comedy is the "ability" of Zikos to twist the Greek language. He comes up with numerous new words and phrases which are absolutely hilarious. The rest of the cast performs exquisitely as well (especially Marika Nezer and Kostas Doukas). All in all a highly recommendable movie, but as mentioned above, mostly for those who can understand Greek.
