I Dream of my Friends

ΟΝΕΙΡΕΥΟΜΑΙ ΤΟΥΣ ΦΙΛΟΥΣ ΜΟΥ

1 hour 54 minutes – 1993 – Drama

Four episode, four instances from a man’s life covering 25 years, from 1965 in Germany to 1990 in Athens. The episodes seem to be irrelevant to one another, yet they all focus on male powerplay, reveal the self-consciousness and moderation of the of the protagonist’s idiosyncrasy and depict some special aspect of the Greek male’s mentality. The film is based on the book by Dimitris Nollas.

Reviews

“I Dream of My Friends” is the road movie of an entire generation. From the 60s to the 90s. Four stories for four decades in four seasons. A hero, who in every story is 10 years older, observes life slipping away, year after year, through his hands. The sensational Lefteris Vogiatzis, in his greatest cinematic performance, traverses a path from the rooftops of Berlin where he lives as a student to the underground marble toilets of the “Great Britain” hotel that look like the luxurious tomb that will house the death of a generation he dreamed of the friends he didn’t get to have.

The film reads like notes for a reckoning that never happened. Everything that needs to be said is hidden or silenced. The landscape absorbs emotions and reflects them into sensations. Nuggets of stories and traces of each era create a suggestive web, on which Panagiotopoulos, with the ingredients of despair, austerity, and irony, weaves a beautiful film on the absence of relationships.
