A choreography tour de force
16 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Euripides drama is played here on an expansive flat field. Hundreds of participants, a couple dozen horses, pheasants and pigeons move and dance over that terrain while the camera tracks through the crowd. It's a choreography tour de force, especially considering the film is made of about a dozen long takes.

Keeping in mind this was done during the communist regime, the story plays as political metaphor. This is particularly obvious as a modern encumbrance accompanied by a modern text closes the play.

The film I saw had washed out colors. I suspect this may not be in the original, but a sign of an aging reel. Nonetheless, the resulting sepia-ish tinge doesn't diminish the viewer's enjoyment.
