"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. 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. As our three lovers live out a complex girl-boy-girl sexual triangle, Sappho also comes to believe that she is the reincarnation of the ancient poetess Sappho - that Sappho who first put the "lesbian" in Lesbos. However, our modern Sappho does realize how the ancient Sappho's legend ends... Inspired by the poems of Sappho Written by
I love you.
Do I need a reason? I just do.
Don't you care about Phil?
Of course I care about Phil. But making love with you feels just right.
But that's where you're wrong. This is how girls fool around when there are no men around.
How is a woman making love to another woman any different then a woman making love to a man?

Sappho really is like a modern Greek tragedy - it's set on a Greek island, and it uses all the conventions of that ancient form of drama - it all happens in one place, in one month, with only one line of action, and the characters are carried forward by fate towards an end that they can't avoid.
And it works! It seems new and fresh and interesting in this age when all movies look the same. It's a real tearjerker.
For movie buffs who wonder where the movie was made, it was made in Crimea on the Black Sea. The main location is the Vorontsov Palace. Lots of movies have been made in Crimea, but this is perhaps the most beautiful of them all - the locations and the photography are superb!!!
