How to explain such a surprise? How to explain the bloodstream that takes a movie from an unhealthy pantheism, where nature is in line with a latent human violence, to the final modernist explosion where, similar to Glauber Rocha, the choreography of the bodies is simultaneously the explosion of a formality and the immanence of a tragedy? Who is this filmmaker who made a film so unique and so genealogically Greek?
A hidden gem of Greek cinema. With an utterly eerie score by Yannis Markopoulos that creates constant tension, we witness, along with a number of farm animals who also sometimes look back at us as if innocent observers, a family slowly self-destruct via a heinous crime. Stunning cinematography by Nikos Gardelis. Highly recommended. Also, don't read any synopsis as every one I've found is one big heap of a spoiler.
