The End Of An Eternity
Greece 1999, 52 min.
Theo Angelopoulos is one of the few remaining classic European auteurs. His films so clearly bear a signature that is his and his alone. He is adored by actors because he gives them so much space to interpret the figures they represent. And being his cinematographer must be a gift to anyone who loves the long, smooth movements that are kept uncut in the final epos. Either you love the films of Angelopoulos, or you find them extremely boring and enigmatic.
