The Fruit is Ripe


Griechische Feigen (Greek Figs, literally) stars Betty Verges as a young woman who has been vacationing with her parents in Greece. It is time for her to return to school in Munich, so both parents sneak her some cash, and they dump her at the airport. She gives her ticket to a guy so he can travel with his girlfriend, then sets out to explore Greece on her own. She continues from one adventure to another, including being nearly raped, until she meets the man of her dreams, and spends several days with him cruising around the islands. They split up over a misunderstanding, and she runs into Olivia Pascal posing for a gay photographer. She also gets a job, and tries to seduce the photographer, but eventually goes back to look for her true love.

While Betty Verges was clearly a little old for the character she was playing, she is a decent actress, and very easy on the eyes. The scenery is lovely, and the story has pace and some plot, even with nearly constant nudity. All in all, not a bad little coming-of-age sex film.

IMDb readers say 5.3.

From the still unreleased Normal: Lauren Lee Smith and Camille Sullivan. "A deadly car accident brings together a group of previously unrelated people, each of whom is forced to deal with the emotional fallout. Canada." Or to shorten IMDb's summary to three words: "Crash for hosers."

Jude Mussetter in Volunteers. 1985. The 1984 pairing of Tom Hanks and John Candy was so successful that the pair were reunited a year later in this middling comedy about the Peace Corps.

Julia Horvath in Until Death. There is a surprisingly good performance from Jean-Claude Van Damme as an asshole in the first half of the movie. The second half is weaker, but it's still not a bad movie for a made-for-DVD with the Muscles from Brussels. This battles with Bloodsport to be the top-rated JCVD flick, per IMDb. (Currently: Bloodsport 6.09, Until Death 6.08)

Kay Lenz in The Passage. 1979
