Nomos 4000 (Greek: Νόμος 4000, "Law 4000") is a 1962 Greek drama film directed and written by Giannis Dalianidis and starring Zoi Laskari and Vasilis Diamantopoulos. The film was produced by Finos Films. The title is derived from the Greek Law 4000/1958 about teddy boyism.


Andreas Ikonomou (Vasilis Diamantopoulos) was a strict father and a High School teacher which he taught Giorgos (Vangelis Voulgaridis). The latter fell in love with the daughter (and only child) of Andreas, Maria (Zoi Laskari).

An incident in the school results in teacher's being aware of the relationship between his student and his daughter, who has an abortion. In another school incident, a student, called Evangelou, mocks Mr Andreas during the lesson by drawing him with ears of a donkey, causing the teacher's fury and the eventual expulsion of the boy from the school. Then, the same student is lured by some thugs to splash yogurt on his teacher. After his action, the perpetrator is caught by police and has his head shaved and be paraded with a sign reading about his offense.

The movie sold 118,841 tickets.
