Deeply humanist, moving, while still keeping Angelopoulos' trademark complexity
26 February 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

One of Angelopoulos's most moving and accessible films (which is not to say it doesn't have a great deal of challenge and complexity).

A film director is searching for the right old man to cast in his movie (to play his father?). Suddenly an old man who is the director's father (or is he?) a political revolutionary and ex- patriot returns home to reclaim his place. But he is unwilling to sell his land to make way for a giant new construction project, making him hated amongst his neighbors who are anxious to get cash for their rocky soil.

Before long, the man is found to no longer have standing as a Greek citizen, and his placed on a raft off shore while the authorities figure out to do with him.

Beautiful, poetic, ironically, darkly funny, absurd, and very touching film about old wounds, aging, and obsolescence, both on a human and national scale.
