Excellent photos and ....excellent titles, overall. :)

In order of appearance:
1. To Hamogelo tis Pithias (aka La Trombata) (1979), Italy/Greece, dir. Sergio Bergonzelli (& Soulis Yeoryiadis) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0195363/ (action/erotic adventure)
2. Stin Pagida tou Sex kai tou Eglimatos (1975), dir. Chrissostomos Liambos http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0289489/ (action/erotic thriller)
3. Filakes anilikon (1982), dir. Dimis Dadiras http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0230231/ (action/youth problems)
4. Mirella, i Sarka tis Idonis (1973) dir. P. Paraskhakis http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0265326/ (sexploitation)
5. Ekpempo SOS Narkotika (video release title of I Erotomanis (1971), dir. Omiros Efstratiadis http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0257636/ (crime/drama)
6. I Neraida tis Manis (1961), dir. Ilias Macheras http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0265398/ (adventure, B/W)
7. O Viasmos mias Monachis (1983), dir. Yiorgos Milonas http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0292330/ (nunsploitation)
8. Edo ine Valkania! (1984), dir. Vassilis Boudouris http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0255979/ (drama)
9. Stefania (1966), dir. Yiannis Dalianidis http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0145491/ (erotic drama)
10. Glikia Simmoria (1983), dir. Nikos Nikolaidis http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085599/ (action thriller)

Thematically, you should group together:
- the titles Nr 1-2, 4-5, 7 & eventually 9 (if you are focused on action films mixed up with Erotica).
- the titles 3, 5 & 10 (for some serious efforts on juvenile delinquency or youth problems)
- the titles 6 (a "film d'epoque") & 8 (a bitter approach to modern Greek society) are really cases apart.

Titles Nr 9 & 10 are -rightfully!- considered as major classics of Greek Cinema.


Long live Stavros Video Center in Australia! Has done more for Greek Cinema than a lot of locals.... :angry:

1. Epikindino Pechnidi [video release title of I Anametrissi] (1982), dir. Yiorgos Karipidis http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0252872/ (interesting crime/mystery film, starring Zoe Laskari, the protagonist of "Stefania").
2. Rachamis (a cheap video production of the mid 1980s, starring Tassos Psomopoulos, actually a parody of one of Greece's most famous criminals) not yet listed in IMDB
3. I Listia tis Odou Stadiou [video release title of Athina, i Klopi tis Odou Stadiou] (1968), dir. Nassos Bibelas http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0191322/ (a very rare B/W crime/adventure film with some early nude scenes, prior to the 1970s boom)

I recently watched an Italian version of To Nisi tis Amartias. That scene at the end when good old George S. is jumping up and down, beating his chest like a monkey has to be one of the funniest scenes in history. Anyway, i know this is a bit off topic, but at the start of this movie, the title sequence is a montage of several scenes that take place during the movie. In a couple of these short scenes is actual hardcore, but only, very briefly. But, to my mind, it is from the actual movie and not just some fake insert. Is this the same for the Greek version? Perhaps, this enquiry should be posted somewhere else.


This is an extremely interesting topic. Why don't you launch a new thread in this same section of Cinehound Forum? Although I don't possess a copy of the original Greek version, in my opinion one can't exclude the possibility that a few hardcore scenes might have been shot during the filming of "To Nissi tis Amartias".
