The song Thalassa Platia was composed by Manos Hadjidakis and sung by Aliki Vougiouklaki in a very emotional and touching way. Many professional singers have performed this song but till today, Vougiouklaki’s performance is considered the best in terms of warmth and sensitivity.
Thalassa Platia is a melancholic song, but it is definitely one of the best composed by Manos Hadjidakis. Enjoy the original version of the song with Aliki Vougiouklaki in the actual scene from the movie Mantalena.

Excellent and beautiful – Where did the years of our youth fly away too. Life is like a journey on a train. We wish to see the passing scene from the window. We look away and we miss something. When we near the end of our journey we sometimes wonder what we missed. We may never know.
