An very interesting movie for a very interesting man!
25 March 2002 | by CharlieKappaSee all my reviews

This movie is about a great Greek poet, maybe the greater one, Konstantinos Kavafis is the man! This movie gets into his heart and his feelings with a ''strong'' and ambitious way. His character is strange and interesting but his talent in poetry is his greater ''gun'' See this movie if you are a Kavafis fan, and if you don't now who is Kavafis is, you will be surprised if you read some of his works, or nevertheless if you see this movie about him!
