Synopsis
Setting out to contrast the truth inherent in the Homeric myth of Odysseus and the bleak reality of modern Greek, Angelopoulos contrived a film-within-a-film narrative as a metaphor for searching for a displaced father. Returning from exile in the Soviet Union, the old leftist attempts to reconnect with his former life and his ancestral land, only to find a son and a country become virtually unknown to him, and a life destined to be adrift. The first chapter in the “Trilogy of Silence”, this is a profoundly poetic meditation on a man’s failure to reconcile with his present, and a country’s inability to resolve with its past. Cannes Film Festival: Best Screenplay and FIPRESCI Prize
