Dir. Theo Angelopoulos. 1970, 97 min. 35mm. With Toula Stathopoulou, Yannis Totsikas, Mihalis Fotopoulos. Under rain clouds and mountains, the disenfranchised inhabitants of a forsaken village reenact Greek tragedy as the economy and the police push them to destruction. This true-crime tale, shot in stark black-and-white by Giorgos Arvanitis, the cinematographer Angelopoulos worked with through the late 1990s, and influenced by the interrogation scenes in Orson Welles’s Touch of Evil and his version of Kafka’s The Trial, combines the styles of film noir and neorealism.
