TEN MOVIES FILMED IN GREECE!
Why not come holiday on One of the Islands featured In One of these Ten Films……
1. MAMMA MIA
By far the most successful movie in Greece, this modern musical based on ABBA songs is silly and fun. Set against a backdrop of Skopelos, Skiathos & the Pelion Coast. We were fortunate that stars like Pierce Brosnan chose to stay in our Villa Metochi – Skopelos during the filming whilst the Skiathos Princess & Aegean Suites were chosen by other cast members.
2. ZORBA THE GREEK
This tremendous life affirming classic epitomizes the Greek Spirit – which chose to incarnate in Antony Quinn
3. HIGH SEASON
An all-time favourite, this light hearted romantic comedy has an intriguing darker side, but all takes second place to the beautiful Greek setting
4. CAPTAIN CORELLIS MANDOLIN
Based on Louis de Bernieres award winning novel & starring Nicholas Cage, Penelope Cruz, John Hurt. This loosely based action romance story depicts the beautiful island of Kefalonia during World War Two.
5. SHIRLEY VALENTINE
Bored housewife Shirley finds romantic adventure – and her own soul – on the island of Mykonos.
6. BOURNE IDENTITY
Partly filmed in Mykonos
7. TOMB RAIDER – THE CRADLE OF LIFE
Angelina Jolie returns as Lara Croft in this action – packed movie which features many Greek locations.
8. FOR YOUR EYES ONLY
This lively James Bond 007 offers heart-stopping shots of hand gliding at the hanging monasteries of Meteora
9. NEVER ON SUNDAY
This 1960 classic film shot in Piraeus shocked many Greeks with its portrayal of a happy, even a bit pious prostitute (Melina Mercouri) but has in every sense become a modern Greek classic.
10. THE BIG BLUE
A fascinating movie shot in part near the Greek island of Alonissos, it’s the fictionalized story of a deep – water diver.
