Prolific Greek filmmaker Kostas Karayiannis outdid himself in 1972, churning out polished but mostly forgettable films at a somewhat alarming rate. This is one of the better efforts from that flurry of activity, an enjoyable if minor drama about two fascist officers commanding neighboring villages in Greece during the occupation. One of them is Nicola Mancolini (Kostas Voutsas), who has risen to a high rank in the Italian army despite being of Greek origin. He loves his native country and tries to be sympathetic to the plights of the people of Pano Rahi, the village he has been assigned to govern. On the other side of the equation is the vicious Nazi Max Richter (Yiorgos Moutsios), who oversees the nearby village of Kato Rahi. The two officers' differing styles of government bring them into frequent conflict, but their biggest battle occurs over a woman -- pretty schoolteacher Niki (Katy Papanika) -- with whom they are both in love. Yiorgos Papazissis co-stars in this passable programmer with Andreas Tsakonas and Nikitas Platis.
