Safo is a South-Americanized adaptation of the Alphonse Daudet novel Sappho. The hero, a naïve young man from the provinces, heads to the big city to pursue a diplomatic career. Here he succumbs to the charms of a bewitching prostitute, who at first seems interested only in his money and prestige. Eventually, the woman falls genuinely in love with the young man, but their romance pursues a rocky road right up to the bittersweet finale. In bringing Daudet's original down to 96 minutes' running time, screenwriters Cesar Tiempo and Julio Porter were obliged to omit several of the more famous episodes, though they admirably uphold the spirit and intent of the original.
