A retired couple go to the Thermal Springs of Kaiafa for the twentieth year running , carrying out the now familiar routine and meeting old friends. However, this summer awakens strong passions within the holidaying couple. The passing of time, treacherous youth, sexual desires which awaken the body and the certainty of death are all themes touched upon in one of the nicest débuts of Greek cinema, accompanied by the music of Manos Hatzidakis. In attendance of the cast and crew

 


GREECE | 1979 | COLOR, B&W | 35 MM | 112' | GREEK

Leon and Zacharoula visit the thermal springs in Kaiafa for the 20th time. He has just retired and realizes he is faced with a bleak future, while for her, another summer in this particular resort means the same charming routine among friends. Only this summer won’t be nothing like the previous ones.

One of the best debuts in Greek cinema, Yorgos Panousopoulos’ film introduces an already well-rounded artist, with excellent knowledge of the technical means, the cinematic language, the direction of a touching cast of veteran actors. A tragicomic elegy for loneliness, the passing of time, the illusive charm of youth, the vitalising power of sexual desire, and death as the only certainty – with music by Manos Hatzidakis. L.K.
