This film was entirely filmed in location in Cyprus in 1970 or 1971. The story goes like a greek drama adapted to modern times.
Well, not so modern as 40 years ago Cyprus was certainly different from today.
Raquel Welch was in her prime and there is a scene of dance that is one of the most beautiful scenes from the seventies' movies.
But what I liked more about this film were the beautiful images of people working. Part of the film is actually like a documentary, where
you will the harvesting of grapes and wine making in the same way that was done, say, two thousand years ago.
There are no subtitles, not even English for the hard of hearing. The quality of the image is good, although not fantastic. But the images themselves
are very beautiful. This film is more than it might look at first sight. Raquel Welch is there, yes, but the film is not only about her.
When I bought this film it wasn't so expensive but I think it is still worth buying it. It is a rare film worth watching and adding to a collection.
This dvd is not easy to find but one reason is because it is also being sold under a different title: "The Beloved (Restless)".
PS. If you are lucky and didn't read the other review yet then don't go there. The author brilliantly managed to write a big plot spoiler in just one line.
Amazon should do like imdb and block future reviews written by inconsiderate customers who wrote reviews with plot spoilers without warnings.
