Reviews: “Songs of Revolution is a journey-experience … the sadness, the anger, the bitterness of people who live under difficult circumstances, but also their vitality.” - Rüdiger Tomczak, shomingekiblog journal.

“This film is really an ear-opener for me, and I guess most viewers outside Greece may feel the same way, too. ... the form of this film is unique, something I have never seen before. Combining documentary parts with musical parts in the same film is something rare already, but this film also combines neorealist style with the musical parts, too.” - Jit Phokaew, Limitless Cinema.

“Mousoulis goes beyond and proposes an eclectic mise-en-scène which oscillates between the uncertainty of being or not in front of fictionalized moments in a film of documentary spirit ... Songs of Revolution shows Mousoulis’ fine creative state, and gives more clues on the current Greek soul, especially among a traumatic economic crisis, than any other contemporary documentary or fiction film. ” - Mónica Delgado, desistfilm.
