Every year young people from all over the world come to the romantic Greek islands. Michael and Cathy came from America for one uncomplicated summer before facing the future. Lina came from France to enjoy the freedom of being alone...together they find an unexpected experience far beyond their fantasies. Randal Kleiser, director of Grease and The Blue Lagoon, now brings you his most provocative film, Summer Lovers. It's one summer you'll never forget. See more »
In order to transport the camera equipment along the rugged mountain trails, the production kept on call a string of donkeys and mules. Every morning they were loaded with appropriate gear and led to work by surefooted guides whose ancestors were forerunners of today's Teamsters. See more »
When "Kathy" heads to "Lina"'s to confront her, we see a man sitting with a donkey to the right of the path, in the shade. As "Kathy" comes into view again momentarily (seconds later) the man & donkey are gone. 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.
