Storyline

A post modern theater adaptation of a classic Greek tragedy takes place in a central theater of Athens. Like every night, the audience take their seats and the play begins. Suddenly, the lights on stage go out. A group of young people, dressed in black and carrying guns, come up on stage. They apologize for the interruption and invite people from the audience to participate on stage. The audience is captivated by the ambivalence, still not realizing if this is part of the play or not. The play resumes with a main difference; life imitates art and not vice versa. Written by Ray Meirovitz ( EZ Films )

Interruption in our habits
7 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Interruption" is one of the best film I have seen in last years. Disturbing and mind-blowing game with our habits, myths and democracy in modern world is something very rare those days. Between the philosophical aspects of free choices and ancient therms of destiny the director build a film experience, that cannot be confused with any other films. In this sense the film is a little bit like a classical tragedy. It has the same magnificent weird power like Yorgos Lanthimos famous movies, but it take also a different kind of narrative perspective that makes film unique. Georgios Zois has it's own voice in Greek cinema and I think it will get even stronger.
