Nice movie...
19 January 2019 | by Thanos_KaragiorasSee all my reviews

"Papadopoulos & Sons" is a Comedy - Drama movie in which we watch a self-made millionaire losing everything in the latest banking crisis. Since he doesn't have another option he re-unites with his brother who is very different than him and they come up with the idea to re-open their abandoned fish and chip shop from where all started.

I liked this movie because it has a well-written script, an interesting plot with some very important plot twists and very good interpretations by its cast. The direction which was made by Marcus Markou who is also the writer, it was very good and he did a great job on it. I enjoyed the way he presented the stories of the brothers without giving so much information in the beginning but as the story continued he presented more. Regarding the interpretations, I have to admit that I enjoyed very much the interpretations of Stephen Dillane who played as Harry Papadopoulos and Georges Corraface who played as Spiros Papadopoulos. Some other interpretations that have to be mentioned were Cosima Shaw's who played as Sophie, Frank Dillane who played as James Papadopoulos and Thomas Underhill's who played as Theo Papadopoulos.

Finally, I have to say that "Papadopoulos & Sons" is a nice comedy movie which combines very well comedy with drama and has an interesting plot. I recommend everyone to watch this movie because I am sure that you are going to laugh a lot and you will have a great time watching it.
