Film Reviews

DANILO TRELES is like a dadaist game led by the ancient Volpone, the Fox Man, the spirit of cunning, master of perversion and sarcasm. The whole film is a delusion, a humorous tale without a plot. The most diverse characters, races and languages meet in the mountains and rivers of Epirus. They converse in anything from Latin to an African dialect, transmitting knowledge and experiences; forms and bodies too speak their own language in harmony or in contrast to nature, water, trees, stone. A gentle black musician gazes at a small lake from high up, in the soft light of dawn or sunset. In an interminable gesture he stretches out his body and catches an egg, contemplating it. There is something reminiscent of the down of creation in this scene.
