Greek filmmaker Nassos Bibelas directed this entertaining heist thriller starring Ria Deloutsi as Marianna, a wealthy and rather naughty girl whose younger sister Katy (Vilma Ladopoulou) is a sweet and kind aspiring painter. Marianna falls in love with Marios (Harris Kerassiotis), the leader of a gang which pulls off the daring daylight robbery of a downtown Athens jewelry store. The trouble starts when the gang figures out that Marianna's father, who has a heart condition, is extremely fond of Katy. That's when they lure Katy to their hideout and have one of their members, Alekos (Yiorgos Moutsios) seduce her. They take nude photos of Katy with Alekos and threaten to send them to Marianna's father unless they get all the money, so Marios tries to take it himself and get away, only to be murdered by Mary (Sassa Kastoura), Marianna's maid, who is also in on the plot. It all ends up with the gang trying to get out of the country in a complicated plan which they foolishly entrust to the intellectual prowess of the above-mentioned homicidal maid. Needless to say, the result is not quite the outcome for which they'd hoped. Mirka Kalatzopoulou toplines a cast including Sotiris Moustakas and Vilma Ladopoulou.
