Witty Greek comedy about a group of friends doing their mandatory army service in the late sixties. The men in question are a group of bumbling goofs who are serving in the military during Greece’s dictatorship in 1967-1968, and as such are assigned to work in the cinematographic propaganda unit. When these guys get involved, the film output becomes something quite different.  The direction by Nicos Perakis is bubbly and the jokes are cute. It’s a fun distraction.
