| A fun movie which deserves more serious discussion.......
Well.......if u see this movie lightly it's a fun and weird film for what it was and what it tried to do for a change.....but if u see it seriously then it's the proof why humanity in general will never agree on this matter the movie is about. straights and gays.......there will always those who will support the others and always those who will call the others perverts and that's human nature. people of today forget that life isn't perfect. humans may all be.....humans but they are not the same nor all have same religion and beliefs about what is norm in this life and what's not. for example if u are a Christian u have no choice but to think the gays are sinners and perverts and they need to repent if they want to be saved by the lord. that's Christian beliefs especially if u are an orthodox or even a catholic. u can't be an orthodox Christian and at the same time to think that gays are normal. so only by this example someone can understand that as long as humans exist in this planet the dispute between gays and straights will never end. in my opinion what needs to be done is to allow all the humans no matter if they are "sexually normal" or not to have rights as much as possible in this life. whatever u do in your bed is your choice as long as u don't disturb your fellow human. thing is.......u can't have the same exactly advantages as a human the ....."normal" human does as for example if a gay person wants to be a Christian and marry his love interest in church the way the straights do this is forbidden by the church for the well known reasons and so by this act there is not a real equality no matter if today many states allow gays to be married out of the church and even to adopt children. there are always those who protest against this act and u can't blame them as this is their beliefs. so this is the answer to the other reviewer in this site for this movie when he talked about......."democracy".....and that "Greece is time to change too...etc..." in his view to be gay and do whatever also the straights do is...democracy.....he forgets that for others this is a sin and not.......democracy. when we people will understand this FACT OF LIFE then maybe our world will be in a better place. you can't force all people to share ONE VIEW at things.
