    This is a fantastic film. Beautiful cinematography, as one would expect, but also a compelling storyline that draws you in, and fine acting by the young cast. Even some of the smaller roles are striking and memorable, like the Girl in White (played by Arietta Valmas). This may not run in the theaters long since it's not the usual big-budget Hollywood fare, but it's a do-not-miss. Especially worth seeing on the big screen because of the beautiful locations. You want to be enveloped and feel like you're in Greece, which is harder to achieve on a small screen. Most people will focus on the one established star, Nick Nolte, and his role here as Benji will cause most viewers to wonder if this is what Nolte has become in real life, with his much-publicized troubles. While some of his dialogue is bizarre, it is totally in character and makes sense in the context of the plot. But don't let the focus on Nolte distract you from the rest of the cast, who are really the center of the film.
