Absolutely loved it
24 December 2011 | by lungompaSee all my reviews

I think it is a great movie and a very important piece in Greek cinematography and not only Greek, in the global context as well. The way the movie ends is also very important towards creating a better climate and alternative solutions for trans gender people. It breaks the usual pattern of ends that are common to the movies related with LGBTQI people, and I think it's very healthy. A lot of familiar faces, the stars of Koukles, Yannis Kokiasmenos' and Mina Orfanou's acting was a blast! Good luck to the director, the crew and actors, hope to see more great movies made by them. Big thanks! And p.s. to the puritan who says he is not one:)there is something more important than the so called hubris, and that is what they wanted to portray, I guess.
