Quotes

El Greco: You once reached out for God, and your fingers closed on emptiness ; and you didn't learn. How can God speak to you when instead of loving you burn, ruin and spread hatred all around?
El Greco: Now, of course, my turn has come - but you can't burn me... and I'll tell you why :
El Greco: Because I've been burning all my life, my entire life ; not in the fire, in the light. I threw myself into the blaze of it.
El Greco: You light fires because you're afraid to burn. You are afraid of the light and this is why I pity you, my ...

There is talk about the film getting an Oscar, I don't see how.
1 November 2007 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I was as much excited about watching this movie as i was disappointed when i finally watched it. There is talk about the film getting an Oscar, i don't see how, it had no depth, the characters seemed out of place, there was no built up in their relationships with each other. This is true in many parts of the film like in the case of Titiano El Greco's mentor. The part of Titiano was played by an extraordinary Greek actor whose lines weren't more than 3. There should have been more fire between the student and the mentor, more dialogue more give and take, unfortunately Moustakas wasn't let to demonstrate his enormous talent and to add to the film as much as he could have. This is very much the case with el Greco and Guevara who kept calling each other "old friend" with irony of course. Almost nothing was shown about their relationship and about their opposite philosophies. The movie kept jumping decades forward without even scratching the surface of the two characters psyche which is a shame because the interaction of the two could have been extremely interesting and stimulating. All in all it was a movie with nothing but beautiful bright colours,great music but no heart.
