Ilya is Piraeus’s most popular person: an energetic prostitute, full of life and good humor. Every day, she swims at the pier, entertaining the dock hands. Sundays she has an open house with food, drink and song. Homer Thrace, an amateur philosopher from America, arrives in town to find out why Greece has fallen from ancient greatness. He decides Ilya is a symbol of that fall, so he sets out to study and to save her.
Never on Sunday featured the first song ever to win an Oscar from a foreign film. The song was ‘Never on Sunday’.
Homer: It’s extraordinary! Where do you learn all those languages?
Ilya: In bed.
