Dire tourist movie
8 November 2005 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Such a dire movie! I decided to comment this film, since none has done before. It is considered to be some sort of a classic, but watching the film after 37 years, it looks aged. Anne Lonnberg plays the tourist and Yannis Voglis plays the shepherd. He is going in jail, because people think that he raped the girl. She feels sorry about that and the romance sets off... The director uses the sentimental music, in order to cover the weak plot and even weaker characterization, while Lonnberg's awful performance minimizes credibility. Voglis is fair (he does not have more than 10 lines!)and the rest cast is good but what to do with it, when the overall movie looks like a cheap tourist post card?
