"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. 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.

Crombie made a wonderful movie about the "tenth muse" Sappho. He won with his interpretation of "sapphic" love the Golden Aphrodite-award during the Cyprus International Film Festival. A fragment of that movie that I uploaded to YouTube.com made an end to my account. It was merciless terminated. I was aware of the very big reactions against the movie of the church and anti-gays, but I didn't know the YouTube-team was part of them. Of course I did vehemently protest against their intolerance, but I received no answer. Scandalous! The video-clip they censored can be seen on my site "Ancient Greece and Rome in movies". That site can be found by typing "klassieke oudheid in bioscoop" in the Google-search-field.
