After the scene of the hand surfacing out from the sea, the young actor says the sentence 'Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the angels' hierarchies?'. This sentence is from The First Elegy by Rainer Maria Rilke. See more »
If I were to shout, who would hear me out of the armies of angels?

"Landscape in the Mist" was Angelopoulos' first film to be distributed in the United States, being distributed by New Yorker Films. This also happens to be the first of his films that I have seen, and one of the first Greek films, for that matter. (If I have seen more than ten Greek films I would be surprised.) The concept is great, but what really sells the film is some of the strong imagery. The most gripping part of the entire film was when a helicopter came and lifted something out of the water... it was captivating and seemed to possess far more meaning than it possibly should have.
