Quelques fulgurances émotionnelles, de mémorables ravissements visuels avec toujours cette fascination des hommes en marche, en groupe, en foule, émargent cette oeuvre élégiaque et pessimiste, avec son amer constat de l'évidente fugacité du bonheur et d'un empêchement rédhibitoire à la félicité terrestre... www.cinefiches.com
sometimes while I'm watching a movie I start to think like this would actually should be in words this works perfectly as a long story 'novella' or maybe novel with improvents and more details I think dust of time would be an amazing 'novella' because it feels like some parts are missing in the movie angelopulos movies always have that unique harmony with every scene but this one just doesn't work
Sinemada zaman kavramını en iyi işleyen yönetmenlerden biri sanıyorum Angelopoulos. 125 dakika içerisinde neredeyse yarım asra tanıklık etmemizi ve hatıratına yolculuk etmemizi sağlıyor. Özellikle bellek o kadar berrak bir şekilde işleniyor ki, sadece hayran olabiliyorsunuz.
A disappointing effort overall, bolstered by two brilliant performances from Ganz and Piccoli, but Dafoe (a usually very good actor) is weak and so is Jacob. Angelopoulos doesn't feel the same here, no longer are we blessed with the astounding visuals and the intricate storyline, instead we are left with a fairly uninteresting plot for a film that looks regular. The soundtrack is good but this is not one of his best.
