  • dionysus67's rating of the film About Vasilis

    Maybe Tsiolis' best film, this is a genuine attempt at an urban cinema of wonder. The subject is disenchantment and if Vasilis' (an excellent in his aporetic modesty Denegris) self-ostracism may have something self-compacent about it, the episodes of detachment convey well an uneasy tension of an ascetic of this world to his surroundings and mainly to women. Production values are low but the rest is intriguing.
