  • dionysus67's rating of the film Karkalou

    Rather overrated (in Greece and Italy) auteur film, a sort of precursor to the so-called 'weird wave', which adopts a surreal storyline in order to convey the search for the 'feminine' in the backdrop of an anthropology of labor. If the acting is inchoate and makes it hard to empathize, some of the imagery is startling and Pasolinian imbued with a distinctive aural materiality. A chthonic, spartan film.
