"Quinn is Excellent." - Variety

The 1964 winner of Academy Awards® for Best Cinematography, Supporting Actress (Lila Kedrova) and Art Direction/Set Decoration, Zorba The Greek was also nominated for Best Picture, Actor (Anthony Quinn), Director, and Writing.

When he hires an eccentric stranger named Zorba to work in a mine he has inherited on Crete, Basil, a timid English writer (Alan Bates), finds himself drawn into a world far more exciting and dangerous than any he has known.

Zorba courts too many women, endures perils in the mine that scare off the other workers, and defies a group of men seeking vengeance on a young widow who has rejected their advances. Eventually, Zorba's undying exuberance Basil to undergo a transformation into becoming a more active participant in his own life.

Brimming with "inspired acting, perfect direction, artful photography" (Cleveland Press) Zorba The Greek is arguable one of the most passionate studies of human nature ever put to film.
