A matter of dignity

Μυθοπλασία/Fiction, Ελλάδα/Greece, 1958, 112 ́ 35mm, α/μ/b&w, Mε ήχο/Sound

A dark Acropolis in the opening credits; we then enter the troubled insides of a bourgeois home. Fifty years before Strella, Chloe (Ellie Lambeti),equally Lives her myth in Greece. Everything here (class, gender, kinship,desire, dignity) is introduced as a matter of performance. The family, meanwhile, becomes the context in which to show an old world that is dying, while the new is still only experienced as suffocation.
