The story set in the beginning of the 60s of the last century leads us to Greece, where we realize gentlemanly financier Chester MacFarland and his attractive and much younger wife Colette. Wealthy American pair of wandering around the Greek capital of happiness countrymen Rydal, age tour guide that their knowledge of the language and country exploits for swindling naive tourists. The easiest target are usually young tourists, who in the company bullheadedness Rydal quickly forget about the exchange rate. This time, his attention was attracted stylish American couple and a young man MacFarland after a few random meetings manages to win their trust and invitation to dinner.


Spouses could also get someone who knows the local sights and habits, the fact that the Ryndal American, it is just an extra plus. But even before the following day, when they together have to visit some of the attractions is a guide witnessed the event, which will be accompanied by spouses pushed into a dangerous sequence of events. All together the same evening must leave Athens, Rydal slowly realizes that the spouse MacFarland not one for which they are issued.


Hossein Amini says that it is a book by Patricia Highsmith, who has read more than 20 years, so much crawled under the skin that was already saw in it a story that you would like to self-direct. The desire to him in the end and materialized debut had all the prerequisites for a resounding result. Amini’s screenplay meantime become a cherished name, cast names engaged in the main roles were quality, premiere at the Berlin Festival is without doubt the best possible start the festival route.

For all these reasons I expected a very good movie, but in the end things have unfolded, however, somewhat disappointing. Amini did not disappoint, but after seeing it more or less clear that the movie will not stay very long entrenched in his mind. Among the highest-quality properties to the first place very good reconstruction of the historical period and a good atmosphere stoner related films, such as shooting in the 60s. The film is well shot, pleases the director build suspense thriller without the characteristic elements: the persecution, the wicked persecutors and solutions at the last minute. Their job well carried out by both the central protagonist.
