Movie Info

In an abandoned city, strident loudspeaker announcements urge the residents to leave, while the televisions playing in the empty houses show old movies. Only one woman can be seen walking along, by memory reciting phrases of famous books. When the town's sole male inhabitant spots her, he appears to be chasing after her, but when they finally encounter one another it becomes clear that his intentions are benign. Like her, he wants to know what happened and can't remember. Meanwhile, it appears that either the military's Morning Patrol or its various ingenious traps will capture them. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Proini peripolos (Morning Patrol)

Almost a kind of Russian 'Blade Runner' -- almost as if Rick and Rachael were rolled up into one female protagonist. Similar to that film, themes of mortality, dreams, and memory, as well as a little undercurrent of loneliness and longing for connection. This film is good, and though it is perhaps not the masterpiece of 'Blade Runner,' it is also subtly atmospheric, with a sense of melancholy. It's a small film but feels bigger; gets more involving as time goes on. Nicely done.

Noirish nightmares clamoring the Athenian droughts,the stripping layers,haunting corners,all this and for what?Water,survival or the clock of doom?Spiridakis and Valley seem to think otherwise even if they belong in different camps,the objective remains the same: hope is beyond the brick walls of a city-fortress.Oh Nikolaidis,you son-of-a-bitch...
