Match Point (2005)

From silly to serious, from ancient slavery as comedic mockery to modern crime with uncomfortable freedoms; the one thing that this has in common with Colossuss  and "Amazon women" is sports that are actually played at the summer Olympics, in this case tennis.  Set in London appropriately enough the story revolves around a tennis pro with some serious upwardly mobile intentions within a rather vulgar monied English family...only problem is that somewhat mysterious American woman (Scarlett Johansson) gets in the way in a very inconvenient way.  As for the tennis part of it, those of us who are serious tennis nuts, get to have another Wimbledon just two weeks after the last one!  Both films also feature rowing.  And speaking of rowing...
