Love Wanders in the Night

Oi dromoi tis agapis einai nyhterinoi

Directed by Frieda Liappa
Greece, 1981


Like the Papen sisters, who are the primary examples for Lacan in his theory of paranoid psychosis, the sisters in the film are bonded with pathological love to the point of ultimate identification.

What are people saying?

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Love Wanders in the Night

    Reproducing two main defects of auteur Greek cinema of that period, namely ponderous script and theatrically stylized acting, Liappa constructs a tale of pathological symbiosis aimed to challenge family values, patriarchy, youth culture retreatism and politics of sorts. It delivers some genuinely cinematic moments but the Godardian tropes dissipate quickly in the indecisive oscillation between poetry and realism.
