The first postwar Greek movie that was censored.
28 September 2015 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

A young woman arrested for her mother's murder, narrates her story to the police officers. A melodramatic movie with atmospheric lighting, about the Greek resistance during the German occupation. The movie was censored in 1949 because according to the scenario a Greek woman betrayed her family and her nation in the name of love with a German military officer. The producing company decided to make a change to the scenario so the movie can be on theaters again. They changed her nationality to an Hungarian that can't understand why the Greeks resisting to Nazism. This new version brought the movie back to cinemas after three years in 1952. The movie was the first Greek entry to the competition of Cannes Film Festival in 1951, nominated for the Grand Prize of the Festival.
