Storyline

The Germans are coming. To snoop, pry and inspect once again, because the Greek are always under suspicion to lie, cheat and scam. And rightfully so. Jörg Geissner, an employee of the Munich based AVO-Bank arrives on the island of Paladiki, to check on the registered securities of a credit granted years ago by his bank. His suspicion: the registered securities - a hospital and a power generating plant - don't really exist. But the Greeks aren't stupid - they will make Geissner prove that the securities don't exist. And so a completely overwhelmed Geissner embarks on an unexpected Odyssey all by himself, against the rest of the island. His constant companion being the shrewd German-Greek gigolo Panos, who will see to it that Geissner's search for the power-plant will get him nowhere. In the meantime Paladiki's Mayor Spyros will desperately try to conjure something up, which would maybe look like a power plant, at least at night and with the help of a few drink and then some more drinks...

Something along the lines of My Big Fat Greek Wedding
21 November 2016 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I was recommended this movie by a friendly couple who had seen it and stated they fairly enjoyed it. To be totally honest at first i was not so keen on watching it as the front cover and the fact that it was a German production and i don't comprehend the language(i listen to movies, so i am not used to reading subtitles) did not appeal to me. However when i started it, i realized it was a nice easy going movie, along the lines of 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'. Really nice scenery of our Greek Island and a funny twist of what is consider to be the Greek mentality. If you want a movie that is easy going and not too long, this is a good choice.
