a radical movie about love and torture
17 June 2005 | by jsordSee all my reviews

A very impressive movie where the main character has to face humiliation and sufferings, while the narrator keeps observing her without doing anything to relieve her. The dramatic side of this movie is really fascinating and makes it a strong aesthetic choice. Olga Karlatos, the principal actress, is beautiful and radical. In the heart of the movie lies a true love relationship between the actress and the director. Love is also made of tortures. The movie also deals with the problem of torture during the Algerian independence war. It denounces radical patriotism. The director, Nico Papatakis, was also a producer. He helped John Casavetes to finance "Shadows". He also produced Jean Genet's only movie.
