Synopsis
Basil, a young English writer of Greek ancestry, meets an older, free-spirited Greek peasant named Zorba (Anthony Quinn) on the island of Crete. While Zorba pursues a relationship with Madame Hortense, an aging French courtesan, the inhibited Basil summons up the courage to court a young widow. The young, unhappy Englishman finds himself learning valuable life lessons from Zorba, the earthy peasant who has a zeal for everything he does. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor (Quinn) and winner of three, including Best Supporting Actress (Lila Kedrova).
