Safe Sex (1999) Poster

A satire of life in modern Greece, presented through a series of different stories about sex. We see several couples and their relation with sex in parallel stories that come together in a hilarious way as the film progresses.

Indeed "safe sex" was the biggest hit in the history of Greek movies.I've heard a lot of people who went to see it again and again...and after I saw the movie I asked myself why???? I don't believe that by swearing or by making insulting pervert jokes a movie can be made funny.I am not old fashioned and I am not against swearing.I've seen many movies with even more swearing than "safe sex", but the difference is that in these movies people didn't swear for no reason at all.There was some serious background to it.Check out Kevin Smith's movies for instance, or southpark the movie.

Furthermore, the directors (which have created some really clever t.v. shows in the past) tried to fit eight different stories and almost every actor in Greece(there were almost forty of them) in a single movie.It didn't work out, so they forced the stories to merge.The result was a terrible cocktail.It seemed to me that they were more interested in casting all the actors they had in mind than making a solid story.

As for criticism, well this movie was supposed to comment on contemporary relationships and their problems.Well it did not.

To conclude, "safe sex" is the definition of a bad film.Profitable? Yes.Funny? No.Absolutely tasteless.
