Storyline

During the cold spring of 1941 with Greece already under the German occupation, a long-suffering squad of proud war-battered Greek soldiers receives orders from the headquarters of the Central Military Command in Athens to fall back, leaving behind the Greco-Albanian Front. As the men retreat, crossing through the rugged and snow-covered landscapes of the bomb-scarred Greek countryside, the terrifying certainty that nothing will be the same again, crushes the weary human souls, blemished forever by war's madness. Badly wounded, yet, still alive, most of them will never return home. Written by Nick Riganas

Back to your occupied country after loosing yourself in war.
4 October 2003 | by jak_o_tourkofagos-1See all my reviews

This excellent film stories the long way of the returning in occupied Greece of a group of soldiers that fought the Germans in World War 2, after the relatively orders of the Greek army in Athens. The film shows with a unique way the depression that the war caused to this people that were fighting the enemy in the front line of war without thinking any positive thing for many days. It shows their loss of positive emotions and how memories of their old life (wives, girlfriends, daily routine, etc.) are hurting them because they know that this life won't be there when they finally arrive at home. Some of them go crazy or die before the arrival in their occupied home. The other ones are walking exhausted through the mountains of Greece and the only thing they see is snow, ruined villages from bombings or German attacks and a nature that is to die. All these, the fantastic cinematography and the deep analysis that the director does in its characters' psychology make this film a great present to the war filmography.
