Editorial Reviews

Sappho Lovell has the perfect life; daughter of a millionaire, married to a handsome & artistic husband and has set off on a summer long trip to the beautiful Greek isle of Lesbos. However, everything changes when she meets Helene. What begins innocently as a summer friendship ignites into a high stakes ménage à trois of love and lust with a stormy outcome none of the participants could ever have anticipated.

Customer Reviews

Maybe you will like the story, but being a lesbian, it just made me sad.
CK
This movie is tragic, not just because of the ending, but because of a weak, high-school project-type plot and dialogue and really, genuinely bad acting.
Beasly
In case you don't Sappho was an Ancient Greek woman who is supposed to be the first celibrated lesbian.

..the sex scenes this movie was played so heavily upon in the marketing to stores. But even then, the editing and really cheesy music ruined the few sultry scenes.

The story follows almost identically to Hemingway's Garden of Eden, right down to the change in hair color and forced performances. The two ladies are very attractive and decently perform the outdoor love scenes, but the main story has been played out so many times with the newlywed couple throwing some flair their way by adding a third party while living in a beautiful locale (Lesbos shoreline) - but this one fell short in providing a talented re-telling. The inevitable drama unfolds and that ending leaves you with a wasted-time feeling.

The filming style and editing are quite poor, the sound was obviously dubbed in later and the musical score was distracting and out of place. The scenery is gorgeous and deserves a high definition treatment, but Phase 4 does not do Blu. Normally I would not focus on the skin angle, but many of my lesbian customers have asked about this title in anticipation, and that really seems to be the only positive point of the film (as the actresses' shared scenes are tasteful, graphic and sensual - but even then the filmmakers tried splicing in nature footage and failed). The cover art front and back tried to sell this title on the main love scene, but they obviously had to paint over certain body parts and the result is even cheesier than the film.

No special features, the 5.1 is used intermittently and the picture quality is below average to sometimes decent. Region coded 1.

this film had so much potential. and for the first 30 minutes, the films was intriguing. then it just got surreal and stupid. it is so sad, bc the colors were rich and the cinametography good - yet the storyline was weak and dysfunctional, and the characters shallow. Also, the blonde woman is one of the worst actresses I've ever seen. She is what breaks the film. Pity.

This film was originally released as "Sappho", in 2008. The delay of release in the US should tell you something about the quality of the film - it's only okay.

With the title "Sappho" you know where this film is going. In case you don't Sappho was an Ancient Greek woman who is supposed to be the first celibrated lesbian. In fact she was from the island of Lesbos and her island's name gave us the term lesbian.

Set in the 1920s, Avalon Barrie plays Sappho who is recently married to Phil (Todd Soley). They arrive on a Greek island. Soon Sappho gets bored with how her hubby makes love and she is seduced by Helene (Lyudmila Shiryaeva) who plays the daughter of a Russian historian.

The woman are beautiful. The plot is flimsy and predictable.

The theme is basically, girls only use other girls to learn how to please boys, for "practice", and/or to keep hymens intact for future husbands. The girls that fall in love with other girls only do so because they are crazy and want to be boys. In the end, boy gets girl and all is right again.... this movie sucked. Maybe you will like the story, but being a lesbian, it just made me sad.

Acting was bad.
Plot was TOTALLY unbelievable.
The female lead was obviously crazy which lead to an insane plot line.
Movie had a weird overly dramatic / unbelievable ending.
Please don't waste your time or money!

This movie was awesomely awful. The acting was very stilted, as was the dialogue (probably because it seems like it was dubbed in later?). That combined with a terrible plot (which could have been promising if not for the anti-homosexuality message and the ridiculousness) made for a movie that is really difficult to sit through. There are a lot of brief straight sex scenes in this movie and a couple of quick lesbian sex scenes, none of which are actually very sensual. The script seems like it was written by some kids for a Greek literature class, and I know I could have acted better than the female lead, who seemed to be rattling off her lines without any sense of character. The movie is set in the 1920s, but the writers of the script thought that they had to literally say it for you to understand it (I guess they think that the viewers are unintelligent). So the main actor stated "it's 1926," early in the film, which is ridiculous. The lead also says something about being from Virginia, and has a pseudo-Southern accent in the first 20 minutes, but somewhere along the way, the accent is dropped, and later in the film, the characters talk about New York City, so it sounds like they are a little confused about their own origins. SPOILER ALERT: The seductress who comes along and screws things up preys upon Sappho to get closer to her man, apparently, and the results are ultimately disastrous for the wife..but not for the husband and the new lover! This movie is tragic, not just because of the ending, but because of a weak, high-school project-type plot and dialogue and really, genuinely bad acting.Read more ›
