Storyline

On the isle of Rhodes, Katherine, an expatriate English photographer, lives with her daughter. A young local wants to encourage tourism, so he commissions a sculpture of the Unknown Tourist for the town square; the sculptor he brings to Rhodes is Kate's ex-husband. Also there to see Kate is Sharp, an aging antiquarian and her dear friend. He has something important to tell her. As Kate, her ex, and Sharp sort out things that go back years, two English tourists bumble about, one thinking he's fallen in love with Kate, his wife thinking she's found her own lover. A rare vase, a spy, old friendships, the statue's unveiling, and off-hand English sorting-out play into the resolution. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

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.
