A relationship comedy by Olga Malea. Evgenia (Anna Mascha) is a fashion photographer with a small daughter; her stylist Vicky (Dimitra Matsouka), has a young baby. Fed up with balancing the demands of the career and motherhood in the face of lack of co-operation from their spouses Filippos (Konstantinos Markoulakis) and Manolis (Kleon Grigoriadis), the femmes set up together. When they end up more than sharing a bed, the men panic and "kidnap" the children. To their surprise, the women happily hand the sprigs over and embark on a carefree relationship - until Vicky shags Evgenia´s (male) assistant. With its fashionable theme, the film is frothy fun bolstered by a well-paced script, perky dialogue and good chemistry between all four thesps. Derek Elley
