There are a lot of great Greek movies set in the country’s recent history and the present, even though the country has a lot of myth and history to look at. There is something about Greek mythology that can’t be denied. It is a mix of fantasy and religion that makes it interesting. We think it’s the pinnacle of magical realism because humans live peacefully with monsters. It’s easy for people to connect with the gods because they were imperfect in the same ways. This gives the audience a better idea of where they’re going, as well as some of Greece’s best places, actors, and screenplays. The 4 must-see Greek movies to watch:
- MAMMA MIA! (2008)

- CAPTAIN CORELLI’S MANDOLIN (2001)
Captain Corelli’s Mandolin is a 1994 book by British author Louis de Bernieres. It was made into a movie in 2013. A beautiful island called Cephalonia was occupied by both the Germans and the Italians during World War II. The setting for both of these works is the book and the movie. The people in this picture are the fisherman and his fiance. She falls in love with an Italian commander while he is in Greece. De Bernieres went to the island a lot and talked to people to ensure the book was actual.
Because the movie was made with so much care and attention, even though it was made in the 1940s, it still looks like it does today.
- ARCADIA lost.

Arcadia Lost is set in Poulithra, a small village in Greece’s Arcadia region. Poultry is the setting for the American TV show. The two young people were in a car accident, and now they’re stuck in the middle part of Greece. Benjamini, an American living in Greece, takes the kids to Mount Parnonas, a sacred place. They go on a search for magical springs there. When you play Arcadia Lost, you see a lot of references to Greece’s ancient history all over the game.
