Life and art progress through crisis. Every crisis opens a crack in normality and through that crack sometimes another reality blooms. A separation, the age crisis, creative crisis, existential crisis, love crisis.

“Variete,” this masterpiece by Nikos Panagiotopoulos, tells the stories of these crises with melancholic finesse, like the Chopin waltzes that accompany the entire film.

In a playful mood and without any attempt at seriousness, Panagiotopoulos places his hero, a director who is making a film while in a creative crisis, against the heroes he himself has created. They are also in a corresponding crisis, as separation redefines their entire life. Life asks and cinema answers. “With cinema, we try to surround life from all sides”, said Nikos Panagiotopoulos, “but life, superior of everything, always succeeds and escapes”.
