End of July, and it's holiday time. Panos and Michalis are brothers-in-law from Thessaloniki and run a small business together. Brimming over with high spirits, they leave for Thasos to meet their families. In the vicinity of Lake Volvi, their brief encounter with a young bar woman delays them. Panos, who is madly in love with her, attempts to commit suicide, and Michalis is forced to strike camp by the lake. Antonis, the third brother-in-law, who is concerned about their delay, comes around to find out what has happened, only to fall himself for one of the nurses treating Panos. He forgets about everything else and goes with her to the casino, where he wins on the roulette tables. Their relationship, naturally, does not reach fruition. Antonis reunites with Panos and Michalis, and they all start afresh for Thasos, but on the spur of the moment they decide to stop over at a hotel. Since their women can wait for them, they might just never go back.Written by
The movie scathingly self-evident: the galloping dependence of modern Greek from the lifestyle, the religious commitment to two-party system, the fanatic relationship with football and of course the ideology of spoils that defined and defines the country's fortunes from the dictatorship and then.

If you watch it and you don't like it stop watching films! You are helpless...
It's a movie with extremely clever script, extremely clever lines. It's a deep movie, sarcastic and funny! The 3 main actors are majestic, so very natural! The directing is not flawless, the production is not huge, but the truth is all there!
I strongly recommend it, since it is one of the best movies of the Greek cinema.
I would not recommend it for non Greeks, if you don't speak the language its very hard to get the meaning.
