A really funny comedy about Greek craftiness, full of humor and exquisite acting. Rena Vlahopoulou, an icon figure of Greek comedy is particularly entertaining to watch, especially when she belly-dances for an Arab emir (a classic scene of Greek cinematography). The movie, full of plot reversals, is totally hilarious. Also, the performances of Hronis Exarhakos and Maria Ioannidou are noteworthy. The film is regularly broadcasted in Greek television so if you are ever in Greece don't miss it!
