A masterpiece? Let's be serious!
15 November 2007 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

OK, so the average movie in Greece is far worse. But that doesn't mean that this movie is any good. What we get is Kavafis wandering round, while some majestic music accompanies etc. There are no characters, no real dialogs, but, much more than this, the problem lies elsewhere: The film is too sentimental. One has the impression that he's watching a kids advertisement than a serious movie. There is no point; The movie is about one of the greatest poets ever lived, but the audience gets nothing. The film is just too meaningless. It could have been so much more, but the final impression is... truly disappointing. Greek cinema needs ideas, not vague dreams.
