Storyline

A, an American film director of Greek ancestry, is making a film that tells his story and the story of his parents. It is a tale that unfolds in Italy, Germany, Russia, Kazakhstan, Canada and the USA. The main character is Eleni, who is claimed and claims the absoluteness of love. At the same time the film is a long journey into the vast history and the events of the last fifty years that left their mark on the 20th century. The characters in the film move as though in a dream. The dust of time confuses memories. A searches for them and experiences them in the present. Written by Theo Angelopoulos

A real modern film not to be missed
6 January 2012 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This is one of the five most important movies of the new century(along with Saraband,The Weeping Meadow,Le Temps du Loup and The Turin Horse).A great piece of filmmaking which serves the purpose of true art,that is giving an order to the world we live and a meaning in our existence by trying to bring light to the great questions of life.It is also a film that expands the film language reaching new grounds in the progress of story-telling.

Angelopoulos'vision is unique in the history of cinema because it carries the great secrets of the ancient Greek writings filtered in a new form and a new perspective.I believe that along with Bresson they have the most completed and accurate technique in script-writing in order to accomplish in the end of the movie exactly what they intended to say from the beginning of their idea.As years pass,with the loss of great directors of cinema as Tarkovsky,Bresson,Bergman,Paradjanov and a few others it becomes very difficult to find movies which have a deep philosophical content and give cinema its real purpose as a form of art.

I think that Angelopoulos and Tarr are the only two who remain completely focused on this difficult and sacred path.
