I'm with emdoub on this rather boring black and white exposé of young love, 20 September 2012
Author: Little_Tyke from United Kingdom

I don't like black and white films full stop. Once colour was invented, why bother ever again with black and white, except to pretend it's art, innit? Also, people may feel they have to love this film because it's set in Ancient Greece and that alone demands respect and reverence. Me, well, I just watch a movie and decide whether I like it or not.

This Young Aphrodites film was boring. It never took off. It was mainly just a young guy and gal endlessly chasing each other over rugged rocks, the little rascals. The older couple were about as convincing as a politician up for re-election. I don't think the girl ever smiled even once, which to my mind made her a bit of a sourpuss and not worth bothering with.

As for the movie's production qualities, the sound was terrible. Lot's of scratching as if a million insects were rubbing their legs together. Maybe they were bored, too.
