Movie Info

For middle-aged Kostis, life has passed him by. As the newly appointed doctor of a tiny island, Kostis spends a dreary winter alone. By the time summer arrives, though, the island has turned into a thriving, wild vacation spot with nude beaches and crazy parties. When Kostis meets the beautiful and flirty Anna, he falls hard for her and goes out of his way to conquer and impress her. Before long, Kostis is spending nearly all of his time getting drunk, partying hard, and even making out with Anna. What starts as a rediscovery with his lost-long youth, though, slowly turns into an obsession as Kostis is willing to do whatever it takes to keep his Anna. Suntan celebrates the beauty and strength of the youthful body, while simultaneously embracing its inevitable decay.

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (7)

  • Suntan is tremendously acted, fiercely and instantly absorbing, a tragicomic tale of male midlife breakdown, featuring someone who could possibly be described as an EasyJet Gustav von Aschenbach.

  • Whatever director Argyris Papadimitropoulos and his co-writer, Syllas Tzoumerkas, had in mind, a full rethink was in order.

  • While Suntan is more than just a tale about an older man becoming involved with a younger woman, it's unfortunately not as profound when it later claims to be a statement on the movie you think you're watching.

    Mar 10, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Suntan pulls you into this strange man's world before slyly and slowly turning the tables. You won't like the darkness you find there.

    Mar 8, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "Suntan" captures a set of very specific feelings: the exhilaration and embarrassment of falling, followed by the desperate denial that one has landed in a very bad place.

    Mar 8, 2017 | Full Review…
  • As Kostis' neurosis shades into psychosis, the limitations of Papadimitropoulos and Tzoumerkas' increasingly blunt, tonally wayward and two-dimensional screenplay become apparent.
