The Travelling Players is one of the major neglected movie masterpieces of our times.

With its stately pace and obscure references to mythology and contemporary events, the film requires patience. But its power and intelligence more than repay the effort.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Although there are any number of subtle moments in the film, even its admirers admit it is long and difficult, especially for audiences unfamiliar with its subject matter.

Observer [UK]

A didactic, audacious, tendentious, highly original movie that justifies its great length.

The human tragedy becomes increasingly compelling as it unfolds, while Angelopoulos' stately visual style is constantly arresting.

The stately pace of the film soon becomes compulsive; and the shabby provincial Greece of rusting railway tracks and flaking facades which the slow camera examines is visually beguiling.

Length is part of its problem. A much greater problem is that the political message that is only one of the threads in the first part thickens into hawser dimensions, strangling the film and the audience along with it.

I was aglow after The Travelling Players, which honestly strikes me, in all its alienation and opacity, as a thrilling and important and good motion picture.

Undoubtedly requires a substantial investment of attention -- but richly rewards it with a moving film of dazzling sweep and substance.

Inaccessible and imposing, it may be a masterpiece, but it's a hard one to like.

A cinematic endurance test, this frosty epic holds some surprising rewards, as well as an atmosphere of graceful power. Unfortunately, it also pushes the audiences' patience way beyond the limit.

Even the most clueless outsider can still soak in the magisterial beauty of Angelopoulos' images, which mournfully depict corroded buildings and emptied streets while celebrating the country's enduring natural beauty.

You can feel the pulse of the times through the music and realize by the liveliness of the music when the big events are happening to the people of Greece.
