"Interlude City of a Dead Woman" is a story of transformation. The story takes place on the holy island of Patmos. The austere beauty of the Greek island provides a dramatic backdrop that naturally molds an aesthetic code of simplicity and mysticism. Three of the five main characters, a former opera singer, a priest and a bullfighter, have fled to Patmos seeking redemption. The other two, an older British couple, are fugitives of modern life who came here long ago seeking salvation and alternative living. Their interaction will irrevocably affect each other's lives. "Interlude City of a Dead Woman" is about a circle of life that lies beyond ordinary comprehension. Through a process of individual crisis and recollection the main characters will reach meaningful answers, which will enable them to continue their journeys.Written by
Director, Angela Ismailos
An artistic film about love, depression, death, God and other philosophical inquiries. If the movie could manage to give answers to these inquiries then we could talk about a masterpiece. More outdoor scenes should have been shot cause the winter and rainy scenery of Patmos Island gave points to the gloomy mood of the movie. The scenery, along with Jan Kaczmarek's music, helped Ismailos to make an atmospheric, theatrical directed, drama. Ismailos is a talented director (she tried to keep a balance), good actress and decent writer. Hope to see more works of hers at the future. Unfortunately I found Erich Wildpret's performance really flat. I think the movie deserves to be opened to a wider audience.
