Der amerikanische Tourist Homer begegnet im Hafen von Piräus der Dirne Ilya. Vergeblich versucht er, während seines kurzen Urlaubs der umschwärmten, lebenslustigen Frau seine verschrobenen Vorstellungen von klassischer Kultur nahezubringen; am Ende siegt Ilyas vitale Sinnlichkeit über die Krankheiten der Zivilisation. Beschwingte, oft derb frivole Komödie von Jules Dassin: eine Hymne auf den folkloristisch verklärten Süden und den Mythos des Ewig-Weiblichen.
