Can contemporary Greece (and the Greeks) escape its history and the myths that its great tragediographers (Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides) so masterfully explored? Angelopoulos takes these elements from the past to reflect on Greek history in the 20th century, between the "stage" and the "life" of a troupe of actors. With the virtuosity of a unique style.
