Tenderness on a Greek Island
3 February 2003 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

I personally found this film to be an excellent story of three women thrown together by life on a small Greek island. I was very impressed by the acting abilities of all the women and the villagers who played most of the other roles. In this regard, I was especially moved by a scene between some real villagers in their home and Eva. They were not professional actors but they were obviously wonderful people. The film is full of such wonderful moments.

I was also moved by the tender care shown to Eva by a deaf-mute handyman on the island and by the splendid understanding that developed between the three women. The ending was deeply moving.

The music and the cinematography were magnificent. I recommend this film. (8 out of 10)
