Never on Sunday
Never on Sunday (, ) is a 1960 Greek romantic comedy film, written by, directed by, and starring Jules Dassin.
Ilya, a self-employed, free-spirited prostitute who lives in the port of Piraeus in Greece, meets Homer, an American tourist and classical scholar who is enamored of all things Greek.
