This simple, well-told story of love among the working class features Vaguena as the longtime maid of Veaki. A marriage between Kalarogiou and Vaguena is arranged by Veaki's daughter Panou. The young couple goes out for a walk, and though they feel awkward, they gradually get to know each

other and feel the beginnings of love. Not realizing the time, Vaguena returns to her mistress's home quite late. Kalarogiou is blamed and considered to be not good enough for the girl. In addition, the family realizes they cannot do without her maid services and try to break up the marriage. Even

the girl's mother agrees, as she needs the money her daughter gives her. Reluctantly Vaguena subordinates her feelings in favor of practicality and accepts her fate. This is an especially sensitive and well-made film. The direction is straightforward, nicely portraying the maid's boring existence

and giving a magical quality to her brief love affair. Vaguena is marvelous, giving a natural and effective performance. The supporting cast is equally fine, and the overall production values are excellent.
