Political intrigue in Greece and the Balkans!
3 December 2001 | by blur81See all my reviews

Assault on Agathon is a great film. It tells the story of a revolutionary from WW2, the mysterious Agathon who is committing terrorsit acts in Greece and Albania. Nico Minardos stars as Cabot Cain, Western agent assigned to stop Agathon and locate a missing Interpol agent. Marianne Faithfull, the chanteuse also stars. Stunning Mediterrenean photography adds to this fun thriller. It is interesting to note that a large part of the film takes place in Kosovo when times were peaceful in the seventies.
