ΑΔΗΣ

1 hour 30 minutes – 1996 – Drama, Mystery

The first fictional film from Greek documentary filmmaker Stelios Haralambopoulos, “Hades” reworks motifs from Ancient Greek mythology in terms of recent Balkan history, tracing the quest of an Athenian lawyer for a missing woman.

He is suffocating in his marriage to his wife, Kynthia,and seizes the opportunity to travel to Epirus. Leaving his familiar surroundings, he gradually enters another world, unknown and mysterious. His journey resembles the descent to Hades, and his visit to the supposed entrance to the underworld is revelatory.

Reviews

A descent into Hades illustrated allegorically through the journey of a lawyer to Epirus where he looks for a woman who has been missing for more than 20 years. The result is a visually charming cinematic wander in which the natural beauties of Epirus which is the real protagonist in a somewhat complicated story, collide with the inner darkness of all heroes.

The lawyer (Georgos Morogiannis) wanders around like a zombie, haunted by his own personal impasses. At the same time the film lyrically, but not always successfully, tries to touch the issue of Albanian immigration to Greece, which at the time of the making of the film, was very timely.
