Storyline

When 30-year-old Stefania breaks up with her boyfriend Andrea, little does she realize what the summer has in store for her. She winds up on vacation at the Greek resort 'Isle of Love' with her 15-year-old niece. Unfortunately, her teenage niece has something more than sun and surf on her mind; she decides that this Mediterranean paradise is where she will finally lose her virginity. However, in an ironic twist, the cute guy she has her eye out on turns out to be none other than Andrea, her aunt's ex-boyfriend. This light-hearted "comedy-of-errors" is a valuable lesson in what being a woman means at any age. Written by Film Movement

My New Cult Classic
19 April 2006 | by sashagbSee all my reviews

Superb. Simply superb. This film has a way of making you relate to each one of the main characters in a witty, funky and delightful way. It manages to make a point without taking itself too seriously. It takes place on the Island of Ios in the Cyclades...and somehow, for the two hours you are watching, you feel like you're there! It becomes your story. After watching it, I always feel so elated and happy (which is rare, I assure you). I hope this director continues to make films, as her perspective is refreshing, entertaining and enlightening. I'm very excited to see what else she comes up with. As a side note, the soundtrack is also wonderful. I wish it was more readily available.
