Films Greek related
Films Greek related have been made in Greece, showing wonderful scenery.
Mamma Mia-Skiathos and Skopelos
The main one for me that springs to mind in more recent times is Mamma Mia . Trailer here. A lovely page has been written here explaining where all the filming locations took place on the islands of Skiathos, Skopelos, Pelion and Damouhari.
The pier and bar have long since been taken down. I also loved Mamma Mia 2 although I have read this has been filmed in Croatia and not Greece..
The film is about Shirley who constantly talks to her kitchen wall as she feels unappreciated and not listened to by her husband. He wants her to keep the house tidy, have his tea on the table and treats her like a skivvy.
Her friend wins tickets to go on holiday to Mykonos and Shirley eventually decides to go, leaving a note for her husband. In Mykonos she falls in love with a local Greek man. I won’t spoil the story about what happens.
