Storyline

They say, all is fair in love and war; however, how far is one willing to go to succeed and to help his family? Would he accept the daring and startling proposal to make a marriage of convenience just for the sake of a political aspiration or would he listen to his heart? Such is the disagreeable dilemma and the heavy burden a single woman has to carry on her shoulders, Jenny Skoutari--the brilliant Greek Literature student, and daughter of Kosmas Skoutaris, the enthusiastic supporter of the local dominant political party. Suddenly, the future of the community rests on Jenny and her arranged marriage with Nikos Madas--her childhood friend and the opposition's leading candidate--nevertheless, can a love by obligation be the prelude to a fervent romance?

A sparkling romantic comedy surprise....
13 February 2012 | by ccmiller1492See all my reviews

This surprising, sparkling romantic comedy from Greece is very much in the vein of the Doris Day, Rock Hudson sophisticated rom-coms. However, there are several factors which go them one better. The heroine does not remain a virgin throughout the proceedings, and the glorious sea and sun of Greece in the setting. Also, the Greek music and folk dancing at the wedding and in the heroine's tipsy episode at the taberna after which she succeeds in seducing her "faux husband" make this film a very enjoyable romp. The two leads are quite good and the supporting characters, especially her father are done with great humor. The handsome hero (Andreas Barkoulis) is comically straight-faced and serious throughout the zany proceedings as he gradually falls for his "only temporary" politically expedient wife (Jenny Karezi). Highly recommended for light-hearted entertainment.
