PURPOSE IS LOST ALONG THE WAY.
10 March 2004 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews



At the beginning of this affair, a voiceover by 11 year old George (R.J. Williams) who is being stored by his touring actress mother (Elizabeth Ashley) for a summer's duration in Spain with her father Mauricio (Anthony Quinn), a rakish painter, indicates that the boy's training in the ways of the world will be of primary interest, but the episodic screenplay produces more complications than can be successfully handled by a storyline. Living beneath the same roof with Mauricio and his grandson is the artist's attendant and closest friend Basillo (a completely miscast Ray Walston) and he and George quickly take places in the plot's background as Mauricio gambols with several attractive women, Quinn - now substantially older and puffier - reprising his Zorba persona as mentor to George. This film is picturesque, made along the Costa Brava and other regions of Spain, but the script stutters about so that no character seems very important, with the acting being uneven - Ashley overdramatic as is her wont, Maud Adams seemingly only distantly involved in the proceedings and a winning performance from Shari Shattuck, normally cast for her obvious physical attributes alone - while the direction fails to bring life into the goings-on, and post-production is marked by particularly atrocious sound mixing and dubbing, there being apparent problems occurring with the effects track.
