A Girl in Black (Greek: Το Κορίτσι με τα Μαύρα) is a 1956 Greek dramatic film by the Cypriot director Michael Cacoyannis starring Dimitris Horn and Ellie Lambeti. The film takes place on the Greek island of Hydra, where two Athenian visitors become entangled in local feuds after one of them falls in love with a local girl.

It was one of the first Greek films to achieve international recognition (Golden Globe award).



The film was among the six Best Foreign Language Film award winners of the 14th Golden Globe Awards.[1] It was also nominated for a Golden Palm Award at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival.[2]
