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>

Trivia

Provocative themes and story elements in the film, such as the young adult threesome / menage-a-trois and a couple having affairs whilst on holiday, were later examined by auteur Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci in the films The Dreamers (2003) and The Sheltering Sky (1990) respectively.

Makes you want to go to the Greek isles
6 August 2002 | by (Bloomington, IN) – See all my reviews

I liked the theme of personal growth and minor sexual liberation against the backdrop of Greece, specifically, Thira (Santorini). There is some decent, although very minor, treatment of the archaeology of the Minoan civilization on Thira. The performances were good and the scenery is stunningly beautiful. A good amount of toplessness and some minor full nudity is refreshingly well treated. Point in fact, I had similar experiences when I went to the islands in 1984. Entertaining and poignant.
