bubblehead tourist
13 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is not for Bogarde fans:we are far from Visconti or Losey here.I wonder why he agreed to take part in such a dumb movie.The political background is botched ,for instance Chakiris 's character is a villain,period:he has no thoughts,no motivations,no opinions ,and he does not seem to care at all.But the biggest flaw is the late Susan Strasberg's "performance":she seems unable to act ;when she learns,on her way to the airport,that she can be killed any minute now,she's about as expressive as a Barbie Doll.Another priceless scene happens when she hitch- hikes and bumps into the machoest man in the island -who tries to rape her of course-Why Bogarde wants to marry this bubblehead girl remains the movie's biggest mystery!

The script ,full of holes and incoherent -on the plane,Strasberg proves she's not afraid of looking ridiculous once more-,leads nowhere,and the various titles (English: "a high bright sun";America:"" Go Home,McGuire"(sic);France:"dernière mission à Nicosie" ) shows that nobody seems to understand what they try to say.The hero is English of course and the poor girl's attentive escort , this tourist so mistreated by the villains,the Cypriot of course.
