First Time Godfather

He will be a GODFATHER FOR THE FIRST TIME in order to prove to everybody and mainly to his father that he is a worthy son. His foreign looks, his difficulty with Greek language, the Cretan's particularities and the tests he has to go through in order to be accepted as a worthy son of the Leader, create a comedy with a political background, existential distresses and tragicomic situations.

Like when you crush hedgehogs!

- Welcome.

- Nice to meet you.

This is our Chief's son.

- This squirt is the son?

- He looks American.

He doesn't look at all

like the Chief.

When you couple a Greek

with a foreigner, you get this.

I saw the Chief's picture when

he was young, they're the same.

My compliments to the chef.

Come to think of it,

they do look alike.

They're identical.

Tell your father that the road

must pass below our village.

It must reach our fields, too.

We can't always be

the ignored ones.

It's all right here.

- Yes to the road.

- Below!

What a voice the duckling has.

Bravo, my little man!

My compliments.

I have a request too, Panagaki.

He has to tell his father

to get rid of the policeman.

He blames our herds, our people,

he doesn't let us be.

And it's getting worse.

He must leave.

I'll give it to you in writing.

- He will leave.

- He will leave!

Who should leave?

The police-mean.

This one was brought up

to govern us one day.

I wish I could see

where to lay the blame...

an island run by goat thieves

and that's a real shame.

None in Crete are born

ready to lie and steal...

an insult to us all

when stolen goat is our meal.

Who's stealing?

- Who, the Manedakis of course!

- Already, 200 goats stolen!

Panagaki, you promised.

We made it clear.

When I get elected,

all goats will be returned!

All 200!

Pano, make us a couplet.

You're a grown man.

A bee sleeps

in the thickets of my heart...

Dear friends.

Long live demo... cracy!

How can it be my son spouts

nonsense at the worst time?

You're son is a man,

he must speak in public.

I agree.

And talk about

bees and gibberish?

He can't even

make up a couplet?

Why is god punishing me...

...with a son that says

things a woman says?

Didn't you see how Alex spoke?
