Suffused with shades of gold and jade, Argyris Papadimitropoulos's Suntan looks like a sunny Eric Rohmer film, but plays more like a gloomy Claude Chabrol. Kostis Makridis (Chevalier's Makis Papadimitriou), a new doctor on the 800-person Greek island of Antiparos, resembles a miniature John C. Reilly with his rumpled brow and fuzzy hair. In this close-knit community, everybody knows everybody, but instead of treating him like the newcomer in The Wicker Man, which also ends badly (extreme understatement), the locals are friendly and welcoming. Nonetheless, Kostis keeps to himself throughout the lonely winter months until summer arrives and the 42-year-old bachelor treats 21-year-old tourist Anna (Elli Tringou) for a minor scooter mishap.
