The Weeping Meadow doesn't offer quite enough sugar for its harsh medicine to go down easily.
It's a typically poetic film, rich in powerful imagery, which sees a bitter personal tragedy unfold against the major events of 20th century Greece.
We get a distractingly vapid couple who tend to drain the emotional resonance of these extraordinary, ever-shifting tableaux.
Churns like classic tragedy while its pace is set by Angelopoulos' trademark, spooky portentousness.
This is the first of an announced trilogy, but it already feels as long as the 20th century itself.
Angelopoulos has created a memorably sweeping survey, but even an epic needs some moments of genuine intimacy.
Angelopoulos has, irrespective of his own efforts, acquired a depth granted with age, sacrificing the striking clarity and precision of his earlier work for a contemplative freedom of movement.
The film is simultaneously simple and opaque, and what it lacks is anything that illuminates the world we live in.
The movie is fiercely austere; no human emotion leaks out and the characters are as blank as chess-pieces.
It retains that Angelopoulos magic in storytelling.
Visually, this can't be bettered, but the superficial storyline and cypher-like characters are undeniably disappointing.
Though he's foggy on the specifics, Angelopoulos makes the tides of history felt through each painterly frame.
