A Masterpiece After the Death of Greek Cinema
There is widely believed that the Greek Cinema industry died in 1970, with the start of the Greek TV. Only a few good movies have come out since then, and this is one of them.
The stars in this movie are of the biggest ever, Voutsas, Rizos, Krevvata, Voyiatzis, Xenidis. Also Papanika, starting her career, shows that was a huge talent, it's a pity that the Greek Cinema died just then and she didn't have the opportunity to show more.
As for Giannis Voyiatzis, he is the actor, not the singer, who did huge career exactly the same period. Voyiatzis started as one of the worst Greek actors, playing an idiot persona, Mikes. At the end of his career got rid this persona and played serious roles, like this one. So, in this role, he really gives a seminar of exellent acting.
The story of the movie goes like this: Two guys have relationships with two girls, who work as flight attentants. The airline company prohibits the marriage of the attentants, so they hide their relationships. But the manager of the company, Xenidis, is in love with Papanika, and this drives to a lot of funny incidents. Inside the movie you also hear comments about the role of man and woman in society. It was strange back then for the woman to work, and pay for her man's bills. Especially air-hostess, was believed the most super-modern job, and the fact that the man could sleep in a different continent than his wife gets commented as shocking.
