Landscape in the Mist

Landscape in the Mist ★★★★

Closure is an intoxicating feeling. It promises hope to a desolate, peace to somebody tormented and light to steer away concealed darkness. It was by no means that the young brother and sister were only searching for their father in Greek countryside. They were seeking closure.

Landscape in the Mist is a dreamlike fable capturing the essence of adolescence with all its bittersweet trappings. Time stands still and places dissolve into one another as the narrative plunges us headfirst into surreal poetry with aching monologues and delicate heartbreaks. Exquisitely scored and flooded with allegories, Theo Angelopoulos' work is wonderously suspended between bleakness and beauty.
