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 )

Greek imitation of Experimental Filmmaking
8 September 2015 | by bbenett1See all my reviews

'Interruption' is by far the worst film screening at this year's 72nd Venice Film festival.

As the movie begins, a man steps onto a theater stage announcing that 'tonight, the audience will make up the characters and story of the performance'. And yet, the film never settles on a choosing what story it wants to tell. A tour-de-force of slow rack focuses, painfully boring moments of silence, and quite awkward false endings. One after the other. It is arrogant in the way it thinks highly of itself- 'artsy' just for the sake of being artsy. It offers no real thoughts or new ideas, yet it demands two hours of the audience's time.

I'd respect the film if it was trying to create unique experimental filmmaking. Unfortunately, it's nothing more than a cheap imitation of it. In the movie's final scene, the theater's audience claps loudly at the performers on stage, once the show is over. In the screening room, the lights go up, and the audience leaves in confused silence.
