The Man on the Train / Dinos Dimopoulos

A party of couples from Athens is planning to attend the performance of Medea in Ancient Epidaurus.They set off in their cars bright and early in the morning, combining their theater outing with a side trip to Nauplion.They stop at a railroad junction for the train to pass.There Mando recognizes the fleeting figure of the man standing at the window of the train and she faints. She recovers quickly and the party continues to Nauplion where they have booked rooms for the night at Bourtzi.They have all noticed the change in her, but are too discreet to comment on it. Later, Mando confides to Eleni that the man on the train was Yorgos Pavlidis, the man she met and fell in love with during the German occupation and that she thought had been killed.
