Storyline

A village in Arcadia invites a "famous" icon painter and his assistant, Theofanis and Theodosios (Argyris Bakirtzis and Dimitris Vlachos), to restore the worn-out murals in an historic church. Theofanis is an amateur astronomer, and Theodosis is involved in various scams. A pure young girl (Dora Masklavanou) is apprenticed to them. The villagers flock to the church calling them saints, but in reality they are two minor con artists, who falsely philosophize, observe with their telescope the curves of the women and organize a false auction. With the arrival of winter, the miracles end, and the "cobblers realize they should stick to their last." Written by Anonymous

Ingeniously simple
28 February 2004 | by opsimousSee all my reviews

This 1992 film was directed by Stavros Tsiolis and Christos Vakalopoulos who unfortunately died of cancer a little time later. The film tells the story of a painter of religious paintings and his apprentice who are hired by the town council of a small town in the Greek province to restore the paintings of their church. The painter and his apprentice begin their journey, arrive to the town, meet with all kinds of people, make philosophic conversations, do almost everything except getting their job done, but this doesn't matter at all. As the Greek poet Kostas Kavafis writes in his poem "Ithaki". what is important is not reaching the destination but the journey itself. This is exactly the case in the film. There is a strong comic aura in the film and the plot flows smoothly without the film becoming boring or "pseudo-sophisticated", something that was happening in most of the Greek films of the 80's and early 90's.This film reconciled me with the Greek cinema.
