Global Greek Events - Greek Elections 2009 - Presenting the Consummate Greek Politician, Andreas Mavrogialouros!!!

For those who love the classic Black and White Greek Movies here is one, and very appropriate, especially in view of the corruption scandals that have occurred over the years and particularly those that have come to light more recently. It's a political satire, ' Yparhei kai Filotimo' with Lambros Konstandaras as Andreas Mavrogialouros, the consummate Greek politician...

Andreas Mavrogialouros is a minister of the Greek government who goes to visit a small village for the inauguration of a local maternity clinic. Going there he gets more than he bargained for but in the process discovers that his associates have been fooling him for years, using state funds to accumulate riches for themselves...

Sound familiar? The film is over 50 years old and not much appears to have changed since then, but we are hopeful! ....


We at Global Greek World are hoping that our politicians have finally got the message and are genuinely ready to shed the dreadful image the people have of them. We are hoping that from tomorrow things will change for the better, whichever party gets elected to power!!!!!!

Kali Psifo!!! :)
