A film about making films without money
23 October 2002 | by louisferroSee all my reviews

This movie is worth only as an example of a low to zero budget attempt to make a movie. But that is about the only interesting thing here. From any other aspect, the performance is really poor -- especially, the scenario is close to nothing, and the final element of plot, related to drugs, is rather confusing for the viewer and in any case does not make any contribution to the movie itself.

It is really a pity that the main female actress ("Maria") is not used to the full extent of her capabilities, and the timid attempt to create an atmosphere of a love-story is desperately lacking strength.

In sum, the movie presents a very limited interest from every point of view, and can in no way be considered as representative of modern Greek cinema.
