Synopsis: An American couple travelling in 1950s Greece befriend a young American tour guide who is also a small scale swindler but proves invaluable when the husband accidentally kills a private detective.
Stan's thoughts: From the same pen as The Talented Mr Ripley this is like TMR-light. It has enough twists and turns and surprises to entertain as a psychological thriller but it doesn't quite grab in the same way.
It is beautifully shot and the costumes are worth the price of the cinema ticket alone but despite great performances from the leads - Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac - this will never quite live up to the comparison of its predecessor.
