Storyline

On the isle of Rhodes, Katherine, an expatriate English photographer, lives with her daughter. A young local wants to encourage tourism, so he commissions a sculpture of the Unknown Tourist for the town square; the sculptor he brings to Rhodes is Kate's ex-husband. Also there to see Kate is Sharp, an aging antiquarian and her dear friend. He has something important to tell her. As Kate, her ex, and Sharp sort out things that go back years, two English tourists bumble about, one thinking he's fallen in love with Kate, his wife thinking she's found her own lover. A rare vase, a spy, old friendships, the statue's unveiling, and off-hand English sorting-out play into the resolution. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Just OK
9 December 2003 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

It's really not awful, although not altogether good. Some commentors decried the lack of comedy in this supposed comedy. Well, it's really a lot more like irony, than laughing out loud. Wasn't much of a nude scene by Jackie Bisset either, but it could have been worse. She is still awfully beautiful, and nailed her character. There were a number of wry scenarios, and you have to give some credit to Irene Papas, here, too. I have to compliment the cinematography, but the Greek Isles scenery probably makes it easy to do well at that. Overall the film was just OK. Grade: C-
