Zorba the Greek Notebook
Zorba the Greek (a 1964 film staring Anthony Quinn and Alan Bates) emerged from a story adapted from the monumental novel of Nikos Kazantzakis, maybe the most talented Greek writer of modern times.
In the film Bates plays Basil, a British writer who can't get out of his own head; and Quinn, in possibly his finest performance, plays Zorba, a lusty Greek peasant who teaches the bookworm to enjoy the dance of life. Through his relationship with the carefree Greek, Basil finds contentment and learns to celebrate life with the same exuberance that is a part of Zorba's daily life.
Life is trouble; only death is not. To be alive is to undo your belt and look for trouble.
