Fascinatingly complex study of adultery...
7 September 2008 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

Elena, a top Greek fashion model, goes on a brief holiday to a remote seaside resort with her young husband Vasily...but grows increasingly remote from him as her fatal attraction to a local Lothario (Focas) overpowers her will and evokes an unbearable sexual tension and passion that must be expressed. There are volumes spoken in a look or a gesture and more steam is skillfully generated in this manner than through the dialog or the sex scenes. The progression of the illicit affair changes all of the participants in unforeseen and unexpected ways...sometimes eliciting strains of sadism, self-pity, mental cruelty and blind carnal lust. The film is a fascinating study of adultery and ultimately an indictment of giving the passions free rein...risking ruin. Recommended for mature and sophisticated viewers.
