Pepe & Poppy: tarantella vs zorba
by Joe Novella
It's 1983 in the multicultural city of Melbourne and the worlds of Italy and Greece are about to collide. Giuseppe Allevoni, from good Italian stock, and Kaliopi Papadopoulos, a good Greek girl, fall in love and set in motion a culture clash that, while at times comical, threatens to tear the young lovers apart.
Set against the backdrop 80's fashion in a world of discos, home-grown tomatoes and pissing-angel fountains, Pepe & Poppy is a charming and heartwarming story about love and acceptance and the universal similarities between us all.
