A tragic era, an incredible film.
23 February 2003 | by (Athens, Hellas) – See all my reviews

This film depicts the hard and unbearable life of the poor land workers in Thessalia, Greece at the beginning of the 20th century. Few landlords controlled most of the land and therefore controlled the lives of the poor. The main character, son of an important and respected landlord, tries to improve the living conditions of the land workers, but his older brother strongly rejects such ideas. The clash of the two brothers brings in mind a story from The New Testament, the story of a son who took his part of the family money and went away but later returned and the father`s welcome enrages the older son. It is important to notice that the films does not support any political ideas but strongly highlights the ideals of justice and solidarity. Definitely one of the best Greek films.
