This is another look at the late-night Athens scene, following the successful I Athina ti Nihta (1962). Presented as a cross between a "mondo" movie and a travelogue, the film features familiar actors like Mimis Stefanakos, Dina Trianti, and Efi Economou wandering around nightclubs, tourist attractions, and so forth, with a liberal selection of current pop hits on the soundtrack. Unlike its predecessor and the 1968 retread I Athina Meta ta Messanihta , however, this one suffers a bit from a dearth of top-name talent and the absence of producer Klearchos Konitsiotis, whose budget and style infused those films with far more glitz and lasting appeal.
