Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This is an uneven drama about high-powered, emotional teens caught up in the turmoil of rampaging hormones and obvious misjudgments. The young men and women are energetically pursuing life and love in spite of school demands until one day one of them dies because of an accident. That death changes the teens' energy into a destructive force, turned outward at the society and especially at the person who was responsible for the death, even if it was an accident. Perhaps too long and too intense to work efficiently, director Michael Cacoyannis would hit a better balance in 1964, in his acclaimed Zorba the Greek.
