Movie Info

On the magical Greek island of Patmos, the inhabitants have lived, danced, and laughed for thousands of years. But, with the arrival of a straight-laced, high-tech archaeologist, Eric everything could forever change. Eric finds himself swept into a world of picture-postcard scenery and romance. That is, until his satellite-guided equipment reveals that his most important find may be buried under the taverna owned by the object of his affection -- the beautiful and uncompromising Katerina. Will Eric toss away a lifetime of work -- and the hope of fulfilling his father's deepest wish -- for the love of a vivacious and independent woman? It will take her passion and his courage to find out where the real treasure is buried.

As standard uptight-American-unbuttons-himself-abroad movies go, director Udayan Prasad's gentle, unexceptional romance is exactly what you'd expect.

Everything is flat except for the island's picturesque mountains, but you can look at those for only so long.

Opa!, a sweet, nontaxing movie set in the gorgeous Greek Isles, has a bit of a black hole at its center named Matthew Modine.

An amiable if easily forgotten story of middle-age romance set amid the sun-splashed Greek Islands.

The water is blue, the women are beautiful, the guys are hunky and the ouzo flows without end. So do the clichés.

Your reviewer did correctly guess just about everything that transpired in Opa!, the only surprise being that the climactic finale hinges on a PowerPoint presentation. It's as romantic as it sounds.

Audience Reviews for Opa!

I like Matthew Modine, I like archaeology films and I like movies about quaint little tavernas with lots of dancing. This has all three, yet pretty much sucks. Meh.

Cute, feel-good movie with beautiful scenery. I really enjoyed this, and it was good to see Matthew Modine in something fun. I have always liked him, but his movies seem to be hit or miss.

with an Indie feel, it was not the most exciting film... but a sweet story (with beautiful scenery) nonetheless! I personally enjoyed it a lot, due to my Greek family, and the desire to travel there someday.
