A harsh movie about political detainees on a prison island
10 December 1999 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Pandelis Voulgaris gives us an excellent allegoric movie that reminds George Orwell's 1984. That movie could be about the extreme measures used by nationalists against communists, or by the 1967-1974 dictatorship against democrats in Greece, but the director doesn't let us know which island he is talking about, or which time of the last 50 years. Overall a great movie, a little slow in development of the story but really harsh enough to wake up the viewers' feelings against the oppression of the human individuality.
