Remains Mercouri's quintessential performance. It's not a performance; it's an apotheosis. One of the most popular films of the 1960s. Enormously influential...Its title song was heard around the world. Greece became a magnet for the world's tourists.

Charming, it makes great use both of its spectacular location and of Mercouri's irrepressible persona.- Time Out New York

Mr. Lemmon is little short of brilliant... Shirley MacLaine has a wondrously casual and candid air that sweeps indignation before it and leaves one sweetly enamored of her.

To see Gone With the Wind on a big screen again is to weep for the fearlessness with which Hollywood once believed the sublime was possible.- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine.. beautifully complement each other. Hepburn's soft sensitivity, marvelous projection and emotional understatement result in a memorable portrayal. MacLaine's enactment is almost equally rich in depth and substance.
