Trivia

Mykonos is the most renowned of the Aegean islands, famous for its splendid series of beaches and non-stop night life. It is also the island of access to Delos, which was the seat of the Aegean League. Delos probably has more ruins and artifacts than any other Grecian site. The production received an unprecedented permission to film among the ruins, which provided an atmosphere and authenticity the most elaborate set could ever convey. See more »

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.
