Ulysses's Gaze by Theo Angelopolos.
Voyage to Cythera by Theo Angelopoulos. I really like this scene. It's breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful. Isn't it?
Theo Angelopoulos was an award-winning filmmaker, screenwriter and producer, with tremendous vision and great story telling ability. His movies look more like a visual poetry.
(He passed away on January 24, in Athens' port, Piraeus, while shooting his last film, The Other Sea. It was not from illness; he was struck crossing a street in Piraeus by a motorcycle.)
Theo Angelopoulos has been likened to a kind of orchestral conductor more than a conventional movie director. "I'd describe myself as a translator," he says. "A translator of a sound, a feeling and a time that comes from far away. When it comes to me, I have no choice but to absorb it."
How inspiring this is!
Here's the official trailer of Theo Angelopoulos movie "To Vlemma Tou Odyssea" aka Ulysses's Gaze.
I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
Everyone needs a little something (that extra motivation) to keep them motivated in these hard economic times in which we live. What's your inspiration lately?
Hope you have a fabulous weekend! xx
