Silly Greek comedy about a money-loving miser who returns from the dead when his drowning accident turns out not to be fatal and he comes home to his village to be reunited with his wife. She has already made plans to remarry a bumbling fool (), whose sing-songy accent provides the basis for much of the humour in this comedic fluff. When the wife is dragged to court on a fraud charge, it is up to the men in her life to step in and defend her honour. It’s routine comedy-of-errors stuff, but it has its moments.
