Storyline

In 1957, during Cyprus' war of independence against the occupying British forces, Juno, an American archeology student visiting Cyprus is caught between the two warring sides. After she witnesses an attack by local guerrillas against British soldiers she is questioned by the local British intelligence officer in charge, Major McGuire. However, one of the local guerrilla fighters, Haghios, is planning to kill Juno, in part because of Juno's witnessing the attack and in part because of her growing romantic relationship with Major McGuire.

Almost great
12 July 2014 | by (Novi Sad, Serbia) – See all my reviews

I like many things about this movie. First, the story. Although it certainly has flaws, it is very interesting. All the time I was watching the movie I was trying to decide if the British and the Cyprus people were portrayed objectively or not. With the exception of few scenes (boys with a knife in the beginning and the character of Hagios) I think they are. For most of the movie Bogarde is not a nice guy at all. This only goes to show the wide variety of roles he embodied.

And I must say that I don't understand other people's negative comments about Susan Strasberg, I think she was great here. And most of all, she was gorgeous, in a natural way.

If only the plot was relieved from a few clumsy turns, it could have been a great movie...
