Sunday 25th February, Dionysos, Stoupa - Never on Sunday

nARTura is holding a film event at Dionysos restaurant in Stoupa. They will be showing a greek movie called "Never on Sunday" starting at 7pm.

The film tells the story of Ilya, a self-employed, free-spirited prostitute who lives in the port of Piraeus in Greece, and Homer, an American tourist from Middletown, Connecticut — a classical scholar enamored of all things Greek. Homer feels Ilya's life style typifies the degradation of Greek classical culture and attempts to steer her onto the path of morality, while at the same time Ilya attempts to loosen Homer up. It constitutes a variation of the Pygmalion plus "hooker with a heart of gold" story.  The film stars Melina Mercouri and Jules Dassin, and it gently submerges the viewer into Greek culture, including dance, music, and language (through the use of subtitles). The theme song and the bouzouki theme of the movie became hits of the 1960s. The movie won the Academy Award for Best Song (Manos Hadjidakis for "Never on Sunday"). It was nominated for the Academy Awards for, respectively, Best Actress in a Leading Role (Melina Mercouri), Best Costume Design, Black-and-White, Best Director (Jules Dassin) and Best Writing, Story and Screenplay as Written Directly for the Screen (Dassin). Mercouri won the award for Best Actress at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival

Πρωταγωνιστούν οι Μελίνα Μερκούρη, Ζυλ Ντασέν και Γιώργος Φούντας. Η ταινία ήταν η δεύτερη ταινία του Ζυλ Ντασσέν, με σενάριο δικό του και πρωταγωνίστρια την Μελίνα Μερκούρη. Γυρίστηκε το 1960 εξ ολοκλήρου στην Ελλάδα και είναι μία από τις διασημότερες ταινίες του παγκόσμιου κινηματογράφου κυρίως λόγω της βραβευμένης με Όσκαρ μουσικής που έγραψε ο Μάνος Χατζιδάκης.
