Sun, surf, sand... and the sexy adventure of a lifetime.
Michael Pappas and his girlfriend, Cathy, are enjoying the white sand beaches of a Greek island as well as the freewheeling nature of the locals. When Michael meets Lina, who is in Greece from Paris doing archaeological work, he is enamored with the beautiful foreigner. Cathy, unhappy about Lina getting close to Michael, confronts the woman -- only to be unexpectedly wooed by her charms as well.

One of the first films of Daryl Hanna (nice).

This is a sunny, bouncy early-80s softcore romance flick with a lot of cheesy musical montages, Greek island nude beaches, and mostly-hinted-at threesomes. Watching this film, you will:

  • Fall in love with a young Daryl Hannah
  • Or the exquisite Valérie Quennessen
  • Or both
  • Stare in amazement at Peter Gallagher's eyebrows
  • Suspect that the Greek Tourism Board funded this film

In terms of the Greek scenery, and the light tone, this would make a great double feature with 'Mamma Mia' (https://trakt.tv/movies/mamma-mia-20080).

The story here is paper thin but the filming location Santorini, Greece would make any movie enjoyable. Stunning. The only word to describe the location. The fabricated menage a trois between our stars and the endless topless beaches are indeed surpassed by the beauty of the Greek Isles. It made me want to jump on a plane and be there tomorrow. Funny line when Daryl Hannah tells Michael one of her secrets - when she was young she always dreamed of being a mermaid, and this was two years before "Splash".
