Wrapped up in few words only. This is one of my all time Greek favorites for a handful of reasons. The picturesque and wonderful linguistic masterpiece book of Papandiamantis (one of the most important science fiction translators and writers although he was a priest) was directed by one of the most devoted and substantial Greek directors. The folklore, the Archetypes of tradition, the mesmerizing landscapes and colors, the acting and dramatizing of events, and finally, the beautiful score composed by Stavros Logarides with an EMS synthi, turning this colorful folk tale into a contemporary thriller .
Logarides was robbed from his award from best soundtrack that year in Thessaloniki, to everyone's disappointment. This is a future cult .
