Τα κόκκινα φανάρια [The Red Lanterns] (1963)

»We have raised generations of lads«

A very theatrical-looking tale of love and money in the brothel area of Piraeus. Legal and illegal prostitution, happy and not so happy hookers, life as an amusement park visit – joyous, nauseating, ultimately too short and unfulfilled.

»Having nothing to wait for is worst«

Bad acting aside, my guess is that the frank treatment of controversial subject matters must have raised eyebrows back in the days. Engaging and melancholy – maybe in my book of sentimental melodrama.

»Everything can be forgotten and something new will come«
