Movies & Television Set in Greece

Unlike so many lists of movies on travel websites, I wanted to add a little structure to this list and a little more background. In short, there is a movie for everyone. Sometimes Greece is the star of the movie, sometimes Greece is just the setting. I’ve drawn inspiration from both. I’ve included the IMDB rating (10 point scale, higher is better) – personally I’ve found that most movies rated over a “6” can be quite good even if it’s not a genre a love.
