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.

Just OK
9 December 2003 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

It's really not awful, although not altogether good. Some commentors decried the lack of comedy in this supposed comedy. Well, it's really a lot more like irony, than laughing out loud. Wasn't much of a nude scene by Jackie Bisset either, but it could have been worse. She is still awfully beautiful, and nailed her character. There were a number of wry scenarios, and you have to give some credit to Irene Papas, here, too. I have to compliment the cinematography, but the Greek Isles scenery probably makes it easy to do well at that. Overall the film was just OK. Grade: C-
