Miraculous Motherhood
18 November 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film looks from several different viewpoints at the relationship of mother to child, taking as a springboard the holiday of the Dormition of the Virgin on the 15th of August, a major Greek Orthodox religious holiday, but simply an excuse for a break from work and the heat of late summer for the majority of Athenians. By extension, other relationships are explored and the 'holidays' that each group of people embark on act as the catalyst for resolution of different sets of problems they are facing. The film is visually satisfying, ranging from comic to tragic and concludes strongly enough, if one is attuned with the characters and their different sets of values and expectations.
