In his most prolific year as a director, Kostas Karayiannis turned out a number of fine films and a fair share of routine stories like this one. Meeting on a train to Athens, country girl Malamo (Despina Styliannopoulou), who has a perfectly adequate voice for a pop singer, locks horns with a contrabass player named Fondas (Nikos Rizos), who is devoted to his classical teachings and generally believes that all modern music is junk. They become enemies, but fate has other plans for them in the big city, where Malamo -- now renamed Magda -- becomes a big success and gets invited to all the swanky society affairs, while Fondas is reduced to composing the very pop songs he so disdained. It shouldn't take a degree in Greek cinema study to realize that the bickering duo will eventually put aside their differences of ego and philosophy to fall in love. Familiar faces dot the supporting cast, including Stavros Xenidis, Yiorgos Kyriakidis, Lefteris Eleftheriadis, and the omnipresent Lavrentis Dianellos.
