In the Ottoman lands during the 17th century, a wounded runaway janissary is taken in by a Christian monestary, where he is cared for by a young Greek nun who has taken an oath of silence.
I am not keen on the "fakery"; the reliance on special effects and superimpositions to yield results; nevertheless, this is a beautiful film.
A beautiful and inspired film set in a really interesting time period in Greece. Great performances and cinematography, although the ending felt a little anticlimactic.
the >girl is a >boy is a >girl (Sofia Georgovassili) ain't too much indecisiveness?
