stars Irene Papas
directed by Michael Cacoyannis
yellow Eng hard subs with original Greek
I have gone back to this drama several times lately just for the look of it. The black and white style resembles the post war work of Rosselini's Open City. Pappas appears with here hair shorn as an outcast and has the hard look of someone betrayed.
These treatments of ancient Greek drama are all too rare and they are a trademark of Cacoyannis throughout his career. Look for Iphegenia as well.
I got the dvd of this locally and it is the best source around that I know of. I've had it going elsewhere as things change in the torrent community.
