The Best Movie Ever!
3 March 2002 | by GreekGoddessSee all my reviews

This movie is the best ever. I've seen it over a million times! It shows that a girl will do anything to not have a arranged marriage. Including running away! Plus dressing up like a boy for part of the movie.And hiding from the police.Yet It also shows that parents will go out of their way to find you. Aliki Vougiouklaki gives a outstanding performance as Rena Katsarou (Pipis).Dimitris Papamichael is best for the part of Lefteris.I'd give it Five stars and two thumbs up! It is The must see film for everyone!
