Terrific unknown thriller about a bright archaeologist/student set on
location in Greece and Egypt. Beautiful scenery, nice performances, an airy
pace by the director, and a script that was actually interesting. I thought
this was going to be another Indiana Jones wannabe, but it had much more in
common with the Cary Grant/Audrey Hepburn film CHARADE. Jeff Fahey plays
Jake (the archaeologist), and though a little old for what I would think to
be a student, is quite good in the role as someone who doesn't mind dabbling
with the black market to fund his next dig. When a prized carving is
stolen, Jake is blamed, expelled, and deported. To make things worse Jake's
best friend is killed in his apartment, having been mistaken for Jake.
Tough day Jake. Early on in the film Jake has hooked up with Rene (Camilla
More), a perfect beauty who travels with the Greek jet set. Camilla More
was a new actress for me and based on this film alone I don't know why she
didn't have a great career. She's is both beautiful and sexy and when she
is on screen you can't keep your eyes off of her. She is also a very good
actress not relying on the bimbo role given to her, but developing a much
stronger, free-willed, "in-control" persona. At a festival dance, her
tanned legs beaming down from a short, tight white skirt balanced in a pair
of white high heels, walks up to Jake and says in a light English
accent..."no strings attached?" There is good chemistry between the two
stars and excellent support from an international cast.
