"And? What comes next?" "It's lost. We'll never know." "Perhaps we should decide for ourselves" Sappho is a provocative and passionate love story set in the 1920s - not to be watched with children or with parents. Millionaire's daughter Sappho Lovell arrives on the Greek island of Lesbos for her honeymoon with her artist husband Phil. There she meets Helene, the daughter of a Russian archaeologist, and she falls in love with her.

I'm writing this note because somebody wrote a comment that this film is nothing we haven't seen before. Obviously, the writer's not from Ukraine and Russia, because this film is just everything we've never seen before - a beautiful tender tragic sexually-confused love story which at the end leaves everybody to make up their own minds. For us, Sappho is amazingly original and new. And amazingly popular in cinemas too.
