Home  /  Movie  /  Reconstruction


Μυθοπλασία/Fiction, Ελλάδα/Greece, 1970, 81’ 35mm, Έγχρ./Color, Mε ήχο/Sound

As in the later Angelopoulos films happens with history, here it is the family that becomes the site to hide a dead body. The reconstruction of the crime, and alongside it, the film, thus become an excavation in progress. The cyclical ending of Reconstruction, with the children playing hide and seek, reminds Angelopoulos’s other films (eg. Travelling Players); it also eerily anticipates a similar scene, forty years later, with the children of Dogtooth.
