I first saw this movie in 1991 when I was nine years old, left at home one morning, with chickenpox. I was so fascinated then, and the movie still has an aesthetic quality to me that I always remember the music and the pictures with love. For a Greek, the images on the beach look very familiar, and those who have traveled into the real Greek country side in the summer will remember their own holidays. Perhaps not with shepperds looking like Voglis, but most certainly with people enjoying the sun and the beautiful sea.
The movie is about a young foreigner in vacation in Greece. It is all Greek to her, so she misunderstands the shepperd who tries to offer her almonds. He is put to prison for that, and the whole story begins from there, with a very tender romance evolving.
The movie is famous first for its music by Xarhakos, one of the very good Greek composers. It also signifies a return to innocence and its loss, in the endless dry and wild Greek summers. Those who were teenagers in the 60's will see it with nostalgic memories. As for all others, interested in the epoch or not, it is still one of the beautiful movies of early Greek cinema.
