In our second Artificial Eye competition of the week, and to celebrate the DVD release of The Theo Angelopoulos Collection Vol. 3 – which features four of the late Greek director’s most acclaimed films – on 26 March, we have THREE DVD boxsets to give away to you, our very special readers. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook fans, so if you haven’t already, head over to facebook.com/CineVueUK, ‘Like’ us, and then follow the instructions below.
Possessed of a haunting and unique cinematic signature, the extraordinary films of Theo Angelopoulos examine contemporary Greek cultural identity through the prism of the country’s immense history. Many of his most well known and critically acclaimed films are presented in this DVD collection, including the Palme d’Or winning Eternity and a Day and his most recent feature, The Dust of Time.
Ulysses’ Gaze (1995): An epic chronicle of 100 years of Balkan conflict and a highly personal celebration of a century of cinema, the film stars Harvey Keitel as a Greek-American filmmaker who journeys across the turbulent Balkan countries of the 1990s.
Eternity and a Day (1998): Bruno Ganz stars as a poet nearing the end of his life who undertakes a strange journey in which he attempts to retrieve the lost moments of his life. This beautifully crafted and luminous masterpiece was awarded the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or in 1998.
The Weeping Meadow (2004): This sweeping and visually stunning historical epic tells the story of the forbidden love affair between Alexis and the beautiful Eleni, which takes place against the tumultuous events of World War II and the Greek Civil War.
The Dust of Time (2008): Willem Dafoe plays a Greek-American director making a film about his mother’s extraordinary quest to reunite with her husband in America; an epic tale that unfolds across continents in the latter half of the 20th century.
