I HARTOPAIHTRA DVD GREEK MOVIES FINOS FILMS <b>DVD</b> ~ RENA VLAHOPOULOU
4.0 out of 5 stars Must-see greek comedy, 3 Sep 2013
This is an interesting film about a wife who is a compulsive card player and gambler. She obsesses over good luck charms and jinxes, and does whatever she can to keep supporting her compulsive habits. Screen legend Kostas Voutsas plays her irresponsible son with a fondness for drinking and partying. It's basically a comedy of family intrigue and errors, where the husband's plans to get her to stop gamling goes wrong.

The wife is brilliantly played by Rena Vlachopoulou, who really gives the performance of somebody who believes her big break is just around the corner. It's funny, sweet, and I definitely recommend it to fans of greek cinema, even though the DVD only has some… Read more
I PSEFTRA - PSEYTRA DVD GREEK MOVIES FINOS FILMS <b>DVD</b> ~ ALIKI VOUGIOUKLAKI
This is a classic film with one of the all-time greats of classic greek cinema, Aliki Vougiouklaki, who had lots of singing roles in older films.

As for the DVD contents, there are no specials other than some basic biographical information on some of… Read more
TO ANTHROPAKI DVD GREEK MOVIES FINOS FILMS <b>DVD</b> ~ KOSTAS VOUTSAS
5.0 out of 5 stars Good greek classic, 19 April 2013
If you are looking to get acquainted with classic greek cinema, then this film is a must. It's a fairly simple story of a working class store owner who marries a woman with aspirations to be more than a mere housewife. She wants to be a movie star, to his great chagrin, and starts to see him as a "little man", which is what the title means in Greek. The edition doesn't have specials, but you can't really expect that with greek classic films; it's worth watching and there are both Greek and English subtitles.
