Storyline

Its summer time on a gorgeous Greek island, which means it is tourist season. Although local photographer Katherine dislikes the onslaught of the seasonal visitor invasion of her peaceful home, this year she has much greater issues. For starters she is broke; her best friend and confidant, a British art expert, may very well be a Russian spy; her ex-husband is a philandering playboy; and the timid English tourist Branagh on his second honeymoon is actually pursing her.

Was almost in it!
13 April 2018 | by nigelholmes-92315See all my reviews

We were staying in Lindos when they were making this film. There was a poster up in the village square asking for people to be extras. Unfortunately it was for the week after we left so couldn't do it. Most, if not all, of the cast and crew were staying in the village. Never got to meet Jacqueline Bisset, but stood behind James Fox one day, in a little shop where he was buying fresh beef tomatoes and bread, amongst other things. Was too in awe of a famous film star to say hello. Have to give this film 10/10, if for nothing else than whenever I watch it it brings back wonderful memories of one of our best Summer holidays ever.
