Storyline

On August 4, 1936, General Metaxas declared martial law in Greece. A union leader using the name Boutros is sought in Athens by Primoukis, a ruthless police leader. Boutros narrowly escapes and, early the next morning, jumps through the window of Marchese Margot Santorini, the wealthy Austrian-born wife of Rico, a penniless Italian diplomat and playboy. Margot is bored and without purpose: aiding Boutros's escape invigorates her, and soon she is in love. The film briefly jumps to 1945 when Rico and Raoul (who assisted her out of love) meet in France to talk about her fate, and then jumps 30 years to Margot's daughter's visit to Greece to find out about her father.

generous promise
13 May 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

basis of question - is it enough to have a good cast for to do a nice film ? in this case, the answer is not easy. and the fundamental error is the full of good intentions basket. a large puzzle. a lot of problems each only in drawing form. so, in final, a poor verdict - one of last roles for Romy Schneider. remembrance for her admirers. and regret about good ingredients in a confuse work. it is in middle of ways. it is not a love story, not a credible one. it is not a politic story because it remains only sketch not very inspired. it is not about Greece past because the details are only small clues. it is not support for philosophical speeches because this aspect is always fake. it is a promise. is it enough ? maybe, not exactly.
