Storyline

Deceptively sophisticated Eric arrives from Chicago on the Greek island of Patmos. He plans to continue his long-deceased father Phillip's quest for St. John the Evangelist's mythical cup near the dig run by old archaeology professor Tierrney, but now using ultra-modern scanning equipment. He soon locates it, but the problem is it's under the profitable tavern of widely popular Katarina Gambierakis, who also won his heart. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Tierrney: Have you discovered Ouzo, yeah?
Eric: Actually, I don't drink...
Tierrney: Aww... When God made the grape, He said, "Give it to the Greeks, they know what to do with it."
Tierrney: [Holding a bottle of Ouzo] Look at that: one hundred percent Greek - produced nowhere else on the planet. It's not just a drink, it's a way of life. It's a passport to life. Yes. It's the lubricant that smoothes out the rough patches on these roads. It's a smile, laddie. A laugh. A salute to the sun and the breeze and the color of the sea. ...

Possibly has value as a draft -- in need of at least four revisions
6 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're looking for glorious scenery, a modern, comic Greek chorus of widows -- and otherwise flat characters, inconsistent performances, uninspired direction, and a predictable story -- the movie might be for you.

The formula (exotic location, culture clash, boy gets/loses/gets girl, etc.) is a workable formula. But this one seemed like a first draft of a story that needed many re-writes before it became a workable script. The formulaic plot never generated interest. Matthew Modine's character had no discernible appealing qualities, and Richard Griffiths is uncomfortably grotesque to watch. Agni Scott is beautiful and managed to make something of her role, as did Hristos Valavanidis in an amusing turn as the mayor.
