Storyline

Marina's sister drowned herself, her brother is both headstrong and weak, and her widowed mother has a reputation for sleeping around. Plus, Marina, who's family was rich before the war, is aloof: so she's the object of the jealousy and scorn of Hydra's young men, especially Christos, whom she rejected. She fears harassment whenever she leaves her house. When two Athenians on vacation board at Marina's family home, things come to a head: she falls in love with Pavlos, one of the visitors, and he with her. The young men in town stalk and jeer her; then play a cruel trick on Pavlos that goes awry with tragic results. Can any good come from the catharsis of tragedy? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Excellent Greek Drama & Tragedy!
20 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not fluent in Greek and I have never been there but I personally desire to go to the Greek islands just like the men from Athens do for a vacation. They rent a house with a woman in mourning and negative reputation among the locals. He falls in love with her of course and he wants to marry her and take her away to Athens but of course, there is a doomed tragedy that affects everybody on the island. I won't give away much more than that. This movie has great acting from it's major characters and the locals as well. The beautiful woman does an excellent job in her role. The scenery reminds me of Venice. It's first rate filmed on location in the Greek islands in the post World War II world. It's a good film! I only wished that I knew Greek.
