All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

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.

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.

Surprisingly good. It might be a little slow in the first half of it, but it is important for the construction of character in the story. Direction was amazing.

Pretty haunting, but the languoring shots didn't really make sense to me. Call me impatient, but after awhile, I don't care to stare at that lighthouse anymore.
