Pascali's Island is a 1988 British drama film, based on the novel by Barry Unsworth. It was written and directed by James Dearden. It stars Ben Kingsley, Charles Dance and Helen Mirren. It was entered into the 1988 Cannes Film Festival.[1]

The film was largely shot on the Greek island of Symi in the late summer of 1987.


In the Greece of 1908, a part British and part Cypriot man, Pascali, a spy for the Sultan, sends reports to Istanbul that nobody reads. His suspicions are aroused when a British archeologist appears, who may not be quite what he seems, and the same goes for the other people who come to the island.
