200 YEARS GREEKS AND INNOVATION
1958

Ellie Lambeti is a nominee for the BAFTA awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in the movie “Last Lie”

In “The Last Lie,” Michalis Kakogiannis directed Ellie Lambeti (1926-1983) for the third time. Manos Hadjidakis wrote the music, and Yannis Tsarouchis did the set design. The film participated in the competition section at the Cannes Film Festival. These were the most productive years for Ellie Lambeti, both in the movies and in theater. One year later, she and Dimitris Horn separated, and their theater company dissolved. Ellie Lambeti (born Ellie Loukou) was a young girl with a slight lisp and very expressive eyes, who failed the entrance exams at the two most prestigious drama schools in Greece. In the end, one of them accepted her, and she became one of the greatest actors of her generation. She was both commercially and artistically acclaimed.
