Storyline

For middle-aged Kostis, life has passed him by. As the newly appointed doctor of a tiny island, Kostis spends a dreary winter alone. By the time summer arrives, though, the island has turned into a thriving, wild vacation spot with nude beaches and crazy parties. When Kostis meets the beautiful and flirty Anna, he falls hard for her and goes out of his way to conquer and impress her. Before long, Kostis is spending nearly all of his time getting drunk, partying hard, and even making out with Anna. What starts as a rediscovery with his lost-long youth, though, slowly turns into an obsession as Kostis is willing to do whatever it takes to keep his Anna. Suntan celebrates the beauty and strength of the youthful body, while simultaneously embracing its inevitable decay. Written by Phaedra Vokali

Great - almost till the end.
19 February 2018 | by lanalekarinouSee all my reviews

I really loved this movie, almost to the very end, because sadly, that's where it went way off track. I have to admit that I was thrilled to have found it and really relished the majority of it. It's genuine and true to what life is really like for the locals and tourist on the Greek Islands, in fact you can almost smell the night blooming jasmine and salty sea air. The lead gives a great performance as a doctor relegated to a minor island and you can feel for him as his portrayal of an aging physician who's life is passing him by is expertly depicted - and that's why it's so disheartening at the end because even he, as an actor, seems lost and dejected with the strange ending imposed upon him and his character by the filmmaker - it's cliche at best and seems to belong to a whole other film altogether.
