Following the huge success of the hit Greek series ‘Maestro in Blue’, Netflix is bringing another amazing historical Greek film to its platform! ‘Smyrna, My Beloved’ will be the first Greek historical drama film to be featured on the popular streaming platform with Greek American CEO, Ted Sarandos.
Netflix has been in contact for several months with Tanweer, the production company responsible for the Greek film ‘Smyrna, My Beloved’. The film stars Mimi Denisi and is directed by Grigoris Karantinakis.
“Smyrna,” also known as “Smyrna, Agapimeni Mou,” honours the destruction of Smyrna on its 100th anniversary. The powerful drama about a Greek woman whose family journal describes the 1922 burning of the cosmopolitan city of Smyrna where Greeks, Armenians, Arabs, Jews, and Turks formerly coexisted peacefully returns to life a century after the catastrophe of Smyrna. The masterwork was conceived by the renowned actress Mimi Denissi. Her show, which performed in Athens for an incredible three seasons and attracted more than a million spectators, served as the inspiration for the movie. She co-wrote the movie’s script and plays the lead role.
According to Mikro Fwno, the contracts have already been signed with the Netflix streaming company, and the announcement of the start date of its projection is expected. Smyrna, My Beloved, would become the second only Greek film to be included in the streaming platform.
The series ‘Maestro in Blue’ by Christoforos Papakaliatis became the first hit Greek series to be included on the popular platform. A second season of Maestro in Blue is coming to Netflix see more here.

One thought on “Smyrna, My Beloved Greek Film Coming to Netflix”
“Cancel Culture” in schools, or anywhere else for that matter, and removing classical ancient
Greek literature from schools is WRONG! Absolutely WRONG! Greek people should oppose such measures and keep honoring and maintaining the extraordinary and brilliant ancient Greek culture. Ancient Greek culture is the base of all Western culture and civilization. Ancient Greek culture was given to Greeks by Gods of the ancient times to promote civilization and wisdom. In turn, Greeks did teach and spread the wisdom given by Greek Goods to all peoples, everywhere. Greeks were kind, generous and did teach and implement civilization and very good human principles everywhere they went, whether were the conquered lands, or nations. Also, I would like to let you know, that at this time The Creator is bringing the teachings and principles of Truth of the Cosmos, which are summarized in three words: TRUTHFULNESS-COMPASSION-TOLERANCE. You, Greeks received in the days of old some truths and principles of the Universe from your great Gods. Please pay attention to what is coming to Earth in our times.
