There are some visually striking and dramatically effective moments in this film about two children who leave home for Germany in search of their father, but the 126 minutes seemed to last forever.

If the overall tone is bleak in its portayal of betrayals, loneliness and disillusionment, Angelopoulos' assured control of mood, Giorgos Arvanitis' superb camerawork, and the kids' glowing performances provide ample pleasures.

To say that the Greek filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos is a movie poet doesn't mean that the poetry isn't patience-trying or mediocre.

Unfortunately, Angelopoulos' conceptual grip is so vise-like that these two never seem to break out into anything resembling the spontaneous behavior of kids.

There are rich rewards here, and the patient moviegoer looking more for art than plot will feel rewarded.

You appreciate its artistry, but it's a dispassionate appreciation.

Audience Reviews for Landscapes in the Mist (Topio stin omichli)

Sadness and solitude.Can't spread any optimistic message if one erases the finale which is a huge diversion from most Angelopoulos' films.The little girl is a blast as with the visual silence of a film like that.
