Harsh world of adults experienced and seen by innocent children in a landmark film by Theo Angelopoulos.
The genius of great Greek director Theo Angelopoulos is evident in all his films.They are known for their trademark long shots and other visual compositions which help viewers get close to the characters. What makes "Landscapes in the mist" an important film is its focus on showing two innocent children as mature human beings who experience and see both evil and good side of adults with their own eyes.Although this film has been structured as a road movie,in a very strict sense it isn't one as too many breaks are taken by Voula and her brother Alexander whose only aim in life is to be able to meet their father in Germany.The maturity which these children possess is the result of a series of painful processes during which they experience deceit,love,rejection and separation.It is true that much information has not been shared behind this film's origins,it can be surmised that it is autobiographical in nature.Lastly,the depiction of a few good men such as Orestis would go a long way in our appreciation of humanity at a time when innumerable crimes are being committed against children.
