Ρεμπέτικο [Rembetiko] (1983)

– I’m scared.
– Of what?
– My fate.

Greece 1919–1956. A woman’s life. This musical and visual fresco of escape attempts, forced sacrifices, and inevitable sorrow shows destiny at its most cruel. Mixes old heritage and new beginnings, oriental and european, emotional outbursts and lethargy, endurance, comfort, blood, intoxication, mirrors – with everyone always caught in the net of life, and existence repeating itself.

Unnecessarily long, at times ridiculously histrionic, bittersweet ending. In my book of dancing and playing to remember and forget.
