Mia aioniotita kai mia mera / Eternity and a day, Theodoros Angelopoulos, Greece, 1998
Today I am not feeling well. With an aching body under a woollen blanket, with hot honey tea and a growing pile of tissues, I watched a movie. It had been waiting for me on my computer somewhere for sometime. The scary yet interesting about being ill or unwell is how you loose a sense of reality. I don’t know how much I can blame the flu for this but I completely lost myself in this film. The music, the melancholy, the poetry. I would recommend watching this movie to anyone, on a quiet day, under a woollen blanket.
