Adorno of cinema
9 September 2011 | by (Greece thessaloniki) – See all my reviews

i listened tzitzis in you-tube talking about the generation of 700 in Greece and he made a political analysis of contemporary youth.This film is an illustration of the division between an aristocracy of well paid individuals and a post industrial working class that strives to find an identity.This identity has to be limited by the perils of a protective yet authoritative family structure and the desires dreams etc that are marginalized by the 700 euro wage.Tzitzis clearly sends a message of defiance with the attitude of her protagonist to demarcation lines that the dominant ideology imposes upon individuals.He don't adopt a leftist prose only in one instance with graffiti on the wall is an indirect allusion to anarchy, and he lets the audience to decide if the stance of the protagonist is a positive or negative.For me tzitzis is saying that every form of struggle is positive and welcomed vs inertia and apathy (friends and former boyfriend).Tzitzis thinks like an intellectual showing us the problem and to take initiative to the discourse.This can only be respected and esteemed, but the price is that he misses the essence of cinema which is to deliver images.His images of observing deliberately dull a real Adorno of cinema.Still he is an author that his work must receive attention.
