"Τhe girl from Corfu"

   Corfu had been always a favourite shooting location for many films. Among them, a 1956 comedy film, starring Rena Vlachopoulou and directed by Yiannis Petroulakis named "The girl from Corfu" (original greek title "Πρωτευουσιάνικες περιπέτειες").
    It is about a corfiot girl whose uncle invite her to live with him in Athens, teach her good manners and become part of the athenian high society. The film was shot in Corfu and Athens and it had been the very first colour greek film. It was entered into the 7th Berlin International Film festival.

You can watch the full film below.

I'm so happy that you posted this film in your blog.

I'm in love with this place since I was living there 2 years ago.

It's been nice to meet the Corfu better through your blog.
