A bunch of restless teenagers are constantly trying to find ways to break free from poverty. All day they hang around discos and cafeterias and talking about motorcycles, women, society, etc. Only a few of them have jobs while some others are students. One day they decide to rob a wealthy man since this seems to be their last chance to get their hands on a decent amount of cash. Everything goes fine until they come across another bunch of punks and start fightibg in the streets. All of them get busted and that's when the nightmare starts... They are taken to the prison of Korydalos where they are constantly beaten and tortured by a sadistic warden who calls himself "God" (played by the ultimate god, Nikos Tsachiridis who seems to enjoy this kind of role...). The film goes on showing the filth that they face. —Lefteris
A must-see movie.
Fylakes Anilikon is a very good film which shows the way of living in greek society in 80's where stealing seemed to be the only way of going away from poverty and salary from hard work. A company of 4 funny guys who are at least 30 years old (but play the teenagers in the movie) with motorcycles, after some failed attempts to gain money without working, they decide to rob a briefcase full of money... Nothing else, then the best part of the movie is in the prison of teenagers where the movie becomes drama and the guardian (Tsahiridis) in a great interpretation is the MVP of the movie even if Manesis (the boy with the mustache) plays veeery good. In depth, the movie wanna show that in that kind of society, the prison instead of being a way to become a better person, the more you stay inside, the more you become criminal and drug addict...
