Audience Reviews for O Melissokomos (The Beekeeper)

The most accessible Angelopoulos you can reach.A terrific intermezzo sequence in between the laboring of the protagonist and his suppressed sexuality.Memories and evoking scenery,there's certainly a poetic homage to natural distraction.The tumultuous landscape of Greece serves as a paleolithic,facial doorknob.Outcasts are not allowed here.
