Irene Pappas carries the day here and the whole movie pretty much relies on her acting. The speech come out kind of awkward and the acting is a bit antiquated, filled with strange movements and gesturing and over-the-top responses... perfectly suited for classical Greek tragedy theater. If your looking for a good adaptation, this is the place. The scenery is too much like the old 'sandal-and-sword' representation of the Greco-Roman world, full of trumpets, fake beards and shaky camera and deigns meant to imitate something between... Crete's Minoran Knossos and... something else... but whatever, it was emotionally powerful, particularly Irene's parts.
Pretty good adaptation of the Sophocles Greek tragedy beautifully acted by an all Greek cast. The version I saw had English subtitles and running time was 1 hour, 22 min.
