Storyline

Two close friends, Aris and Stelios, have their minds on a mutual goal; they "immigrate" to the south of Greece and together they begin a banana greenhouse business in Crete. There they live secluded in a house by the countryside, with a magnificent view of the Libyan Sea having as their sole amusement Angeliki's nearby tavern. This is a place where mostly foreign tourists arrive; drown like magnets by the magic of the unknown, red African horizon. Determined to keep women out of their lives, they, and mostly Aris, are unfriendly towards the newly arrived Cordoba, a friend of Aris' sister who lives and works in Germany. Stelios, after going on a casual stroll with her in the island's market, will end up going to bed with her. In a mood of recklessness that "suits" summer affairs. But this "one night stand" will develop into a relationship and lead to Cordoba moving in the house the two friends share. Feeling antagonistic, mostly towards Stelios, Aris finds himself flirting with ... Written by PK

Two Greeks fight over a foreign woman one summer...so what?
28 April 2018 | by aldebaran68See all my reviews

The film is well-made. Its dialogue is ...'convincing'. The two Greek male leads are quite adequate in their roles, as is the actress.

Aside from these basic points in favour, I really don't see what the point of the movie is. Two Greek men living lonely lives on the south coast of Crete, growing...bananas... end up both falling for the same German woman, and fighting over her... Maybe 'going bananas' is 'a metaphor' for their state of mind rel to her and each other... Sorry, but it is an obvious metaphor...

Now, why anyone should imagine that this story line, which must be repeated hundreds of times all over Greece every summer, between X million young Greek males and x million young female tourists, is worth making a whole movie out of is beyond me.

Its not a ;'bad' movie or i wouldn't have watched it all the way through. But it does seem pretty pointless. 'So what?' was my question at the beginning of the movie...and 'so what?' remains my question at the end if the movie.
