Sian Anderson (Meg Foster) is a writer of trashy novels who decides to take a break and rents a villa on a remote Greek island for the winter. The eccentric Englishman renting her the place is Elias Appleby (Robert Morley), who warns her about the fierce winds that blow at night,

sometimes with fatal results. She settles down and tries to begin working on her next book. Later Appleby fires the caretaker, Phil (Wings Hauser), a former seaman and mercenary at the end of his tether. Then Sian sees Phil kill Appleby and bury him in the yard. Speaking no Greek, she is only able

to call her boyfriend (David McCallum) in Los Angeles and have him call back for help. Meanwhile, Phil knows what Sian has seen.

An entertaining, suspenseful drama, THE WIND benefits most from excellent performances by Foster and Hauser. The other cast members have little to do but die or move the plot along, though Morley is as delightful as ever. Shot on the island of Monemvassia off the coast of Greece, the movie is full

of spectacular scenery. With THE WIND, producer-writer-director Nico Mastorakis proves he can make as good a film as anyone, and better than most.
