| Most enjoyable !
Just watched "νηsos" or "The Island" as how IMDb translates this.

Got to say this comedy movie is one of the best created in Greece and there is no wonder why! The story is about a will of a business man and the havoc it creates.The plot becomes a bit darkened but clever.

Shooted in Sifnos,an island located at western Cyclades in the Aegean sea, contains beautiful view for the whole time of the movie, natural landscapes ,but also traditional Greek island neighborhoods and buildings.

The humour is brilliant and I found myself laughing all the time.A well picked cast,supports the humour and plot as they deserve.

If a slightly better end existed I would rate this better,but it is one of the funniest and enjoyably movies that I have seen.
