A real artistic movie
19 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With 'no budget story' Haralampidis tries not just to make a low cost story (The whole budget was just 15000$). He succeeds in two things. First to give a lesson to all these who think that cinema is just an industry, a way to make money, so, if somebody spends a lot of money in making a movie, he'll be a success. These people have forgotten the relation between art and cinema. The other target of Haralampidis was to pay a tribute to all the great directors that he is fond of, like Scorceze, Felini, or Bunuel. In the film, he actually makes us feel the desperation and the hope of a young director that cares only for the artistic side of cinema, and can not find any support or somebody at least to understand him. For me is an example of how movies should be made. A study on the cinema of the great directors and not on the cinema that belongs to Hollywood (and all the others that would like to be Hollywood), where only money talks. A film that you can watch it a lot of times and every time it will give you something new, real artistic movie. Congratulations to Haralampidi.
