The songs are great
What I liked best in this film were the beautiful songs and the rare performances of the well-known Cypriot actors Demetra Demetriadou, Andreas Potamites and Olga Potamitou (in the film are father and daughter, while in real life were husband and wife).
The late Doukissa is good at her performance, but she was more a singer than an actress. Kostas Kakavas and his "mother" delivered the standard characters that you will see in dozens of Greek films in this period, that is the good husband and the bad mother-in-law (that of course holds her son by the nose).
As I said, the songs are a must, especially the Cypriot folk songs performed at the departure scene sang by Potamitou and Doukissa, that even though she was not a Cypriot herself, she manages the dialect fine.
