Storyline

The film-biography is a tribute to the Great Awakening Writer NIKOS KAZANTZAKIS. The ecumenical writer Nikos Kazantzakis said that his life is defined by his travels and dreams. These tracks were followed by the film. The presence of the Greek spirit, which represents great ideals, is intense. Freedom, power, creation, strong friendships, dynamic spirit. All of these elements make up a heartfelt sensation that will make you feel human, feel free. "I hope nothing, I fear nothing, I am free." Nikon Kazantzakis Written by irenemavr-21946

Good way of describing his life
21 January 2019 | by balkanistikaSee all my reviews

Its very difficult to describe the life of an author like Kazantzakis, because his life is full interesting, beautiful and painfull experience. Thats why I think they did good job l. Always support the biographical movies ❤✔📽
