Movie Info

Director Theodoros Anghelopulos has created a clever vehicle for conveying the substance of this award-winning political drama. He uses the acting techniques of Greek tragedy, such as formal posturing and long-held camera shots, as well as symbolism right out of classical Greek plays, to put across his parallel to Alexander the Great. This new Alexander is a "bandit" who escapes from prison in 1900 and starts fighting the government. He kidnaps some British aristocrats to hold them as ransom

Audience Reviews for Megalexandros, O, (Alexander the Great )

A thrilling exultation.Serene insight and captivating sequences,traditional detail whereas Antonutti's pious expiation derives from those fleshes and wounds his people suffer.Alexander,not the great rather the generous is an insurgent.Rebellions and justice "leagues",their leader a man holding a particular silence on all events.Greece as a gloomy,monarchic,terrifying location in the early 20th century shown through Angelopoulos' lens.A master's lens.
