Storyline

A young American couple go to the Greek islands for the summer and are dazzled by the beauty and the uninhibited people surrounding them. The young man meets and begins an affair with a French woman, an archeologist working on a dig. The young American woman discovers this and goes to confront the other woman. The French woman is quite taken with the American woman's photographic work, and the three become very close. Written by David Carroll <davidc@atom.ansto.gov.au>

One of the best movies I have seen
15 October 2004 | by (Banjaluka, Republika Srpska) – See all my reviews

I must have seen this movie 20 times since 1991 when I first saw it. Nothing else to be said, but perfect!!! Perfect and yet, very simple! Music is fantastic,the cast is perfect. Locations are only to wish for. Dialogs- humorous. I could go on and on about it. I never actually analyzed the plot (my wife dislikes the movie mostly for its threesome theme) but one should never analyze something as perfect looking as this. It is a real poetry of film-making! And don't get me wrong, because I've seen Sofia's choice, Traffic, Blade Runner and all bunch of stuff with all kind of themes and complexities! This is the movie you WATCH and Enjoy! All the time! Every time! I strongly recommend it especially Greece and beach lovers.
