Synopsis / Plot
In this second part of Theo Angelopoulos’ historical panorama, an American film director of Greek ancestry named A is making a film about the life of his parents, Spyros and Eleni. At the same time the film is a long journey into the vast history and the events of the last fifty years that left their mark on the 20th century.It is a tale that unfolds in Italy, Germany, Russia, Kazakhstan, Canada and the USA. Time and again, the love story of these two Greek émigrés has been influenced by historical events: separated from each other during the Second World War, Spyros emigrated to the USA; in the wake of civil war in Greece Eleni found herself in the Soviet Union, along with other political exiles.
