A young American couple go to the Greek islands for the summer and are dazzled by the beauty and the uninhibited people surrounding them. The young man meets and begins an affair with a French woman, an archeologist working on a dig. The young American woman discovers this and goes to confront the other woman. The French woman is quite taken with the American woman's photographic work, and the three become very close.Written by

The dvd version of the movie has deleted an original scene of Lina laying naked in the sun on her villa wall, with a very slow dolly across her from head to toe, with the view out to sea. See more »
When Cathy and Michael arrive at the villa, Cathy has a band-aid on her left arm between the elbow and the outer edge of her arm. This is seen when Michael knees her in the butt. When Cathy picks up the shower head and pretends it is a telephone the band-aid is missing. But when she walks outside with Michael, the band-aid reappears. See more »

I liked the theme of personal growth and minor sexual liberation against the backdrop of Greece, specifically, Thira (Santorini). There is some decent, although very minor, treatment of the archaeology of the Minoan civilization on Thira. The performances were good and the scenery is stunningly beautiful. A good amount of toplessness and some minor full nudity is refreshingly well treated. Point in fact, I had similar experiences when I went to the islands in 1984. Entertaining and poignant.
