O drakos / The Ogre of Athens / The Dragon (1956) DVD5
This is the first Greek film of that "Artistic" nature, that years later would almost destroy the Greek cinema. But in the 50's it was a great novelty for the local production. On a first level, it's talking about the story of a little man who is tiered of being this little man and decides that he 'd rather have the short but glorious life of a famous criminal.
Peaceful man because of his similar face with a famous and wanted criminal, "the dragon", gives up his normal but misery life in order to become at last a famous person. He becomes the leader of a criminal group (that they think him as "the dragon") in a great and ambitious operation. He also falls in love with a young and beautiful singer of the bar that is the center of this criminal group; but unfortunatelly she cannot understand the tragic emotional situation of this man...
A beautiful, lyrical tragedy, with a message to read between the lines.
