The Dust of Time Film Poster


The second film in Theodoros Angelopoulos' loosely-connected trilogy, which began with his 2004 film 'The Weeping Meadow'. The trilogy follows the story of two lovers, Spyros and Eleni (played in this instalment by Michel Piccoli and Irène Jacob), who are parted after fleeing Greece during the First World War. In this film, Willem Dafoe stars as A, the couple's American son, who sets out to make a film charting his life story from the day he was born in 1953 until the present day. Sifting through long-buried memories, A drifts into a dream-like narrative that unfolds in the former Soviet Union, the Austrian-Hungarian borders, Italy and New York, and takes in historical events from Stalin's death to Nixon's resignation and the fall of the Greek junta.
