Hilariously entertaining
1 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

The Isle of Lesbos has no Byzantine plot line. The special effects are rather weak even for 1997 standards. There are barely any vicious fight scenes. The depiction of the human psyche is sub-par when compared to the movies of Ingmar Bergman.

What you get instead is one and a half hours of surreal and hysterical musical entertainment. The songs are great with catchy tunes and well-written lyrics. Be prepared to deal with the urge of singing "I'm a la-la-la-la-lesbian" in the supermarket - even if you're a man. The dialogs between the songs are somewhat forced and amateurish. Probably intended so, but who cares. The characters are nicely exaggerated, although some of them to a level that makes them look a bit boring. Wholehearted rednecks won't like the movie.

The Isle of Lesbos does pretty well what it wants to be, and it doesn't want to be anything else. I like that. I gave it 8 stars out of 10 because its second half just cannot maintain the awesome level set in the first part. Definitely worth watching. Definitely worth watching a second or third time, too.
