Mystery, war, romance, tension, great
2 December 2004 | by PaulBSSee all my reviews

A former UK officer returns to the island of Crete where he played a roll in the resistance movement after the nazi's occupied the island and the British forces where overrun. It's however more as just a vacation meeting old friends, visiting the places from the past, there is a mysterious history involved, he has an old romance but also made enemies from the past. Film is set on Crete in Greece and was for a good part actually filmed on the island. Colorfull TV series which I've seen in 1977 and never since but still can remember vividly, can't wait for it to finally come out on DVD!
