There is a scene in "The Greek Tycoon" that I consider the best scene of the film
It was Sunset... The sun was disappearing below the horizon... The sea at its ever-changing wave style... The wavesin all its moods, clear and calm, mysterious, awesomely threatening were beating under the old rocks...
Anthony Quinn (fabulous as always) was standing alone in front of this wonderful view...
The sky was offering the best looking effects of red and yellow lights... In the horizon some pale clouds were escorting the sun to another world... Tomasis was truly flavoring the moment... The beauty of this great view invited him to dance, to slowly move his hands and legs, to feel the fresh air, to hear the sound of music, to smell the salt of the sea...
Tomasis' dance was a farewell to a world he cherished This beautiful scene makes me meditate about human life: God's 'greatest gift'... Sometimes we forget this precious present...
