Wonderful film!
10 December 2006 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to catch "Alexandria" as part of a film series in 2006. What a wonderful movie! The story is very well written and the actors are wonderful. What really struck me however was the cinematography - which was absolutely stunning!

Unfortunately, this little gem of a film doesn't appear to be on DVD anywhere - I even checked on a recent trip to Greece. What a shame, as I would dearly love to own this movie and be able to introduce it to others.

If you have the opportunity to see it, do yourself a favor and give it a chance. I don't think that you'll be disappointed.
