Yiorgos Petridis directed this rather uninspiring Greek morality play about a pasta factory owner named Aristotelis (Nikos Stavridis) who, after two divorces, falls madly in love with a beautiful singer named Mirella (Marina Pavlidou). Smitten beyond reason, Aristotelis begins spending all the factory's money on Mirella, much to the consternation of his partner, Orestis (Mimis Fotopoulos). Orestis' concern is well founded, because before too long the foolhardy Aristotelis has eaten up all the profits and the factory is forced to close. That's when Aristotelis' twin brother, Vangelis (also played by Stavridis), shows up from the Congo and puts his wayward sibling back on the straight and narrow before going back to Africa with Mirella in tow. All of this is intended to show, perhaps not without foundation, that practicality in business is far more important than any romantic fancy. The message may be a valid one, but it hardly makes for transcendent cinema, playing more as a lecture to an impulsive schoolboy than an engaging drama. Katerina Youlaki co-stars with Sofi Zanninou and Rena Paschalidou.
