For this ambitious screen version of one of the most powerful works of classic Greek theater, director Michael Cacoyannis (Zorba The Greek, The Cherry Orchid) "unleashes the talents of four of the screen's most exciting actresses" (NY Daily News). Four time Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn (The Lion In Winter, A Delicate Balance), Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave (Julia), Oscar nominee Genevieve Bujold (Anne Of The Thousand Days) seamlessly mesh into an unprecedented ensemble cast that "one could never hope to see on stage" (Pauline Kael, New Yorker). After their ten-year siege, the victorious Greek army seeks to curse those Trojans whom fate has yet spared. Separated from their children, denied their mourning and destined for slavery, the women of fallen Troy huddle within the parched wreckage of their once glorious city. Beautiful Cassandra (Bujold) is betrothed against her will despite her vanishing sanity. Andromache (Redgrave) discovers her son is to be executed to and end her royal bloodline. Helen (papas) desperately wields the arrogant beauty that leveled a city as she pleads for hr life. But it is Hecuba (Hepburn), widowed queen of Troy, whose enduring dignity and unfaltering strength makes cowards of Troy's captors

On May 20, 1941, thousands of elite Nazi paratroopers assaulted the island of Crete. It was the beginning of the Battle of Crete--the largest Nazi airborne operation of World War II. They had expected to control the island within a few days; after all, they only needed to occupy Paris for a week before France surrendered. What they hadn't expected was that the men, women, and even children of Crete would fight them to their dying breath. Together with hundreds of stranded soldiers from England, Australia, and New Zealand, and a handful of British special operations commandos who had parachuted in to help, the Cretan resistance dealt Nazi Germany one of its most crippling defeats of the entire war. They would even kidnap the German commandant of Crete, General Kreipe--the famous operation masterminded and led by British Special Operations officer Patrick Leigh Fermor. It was the only successful kidnapping of a German general throughout the war.
With dramatic re-creations and over 20 veterans interviewed from Crete, England, Australia, and New Zealand, including Leigh Fermor himself, The 11th Day is a heart-pounding adventure story about courage, faith, and heroism...a story that is all the more remarkable because it is history.
"Until now, we knew that Greeks were fighting like heroes; from now on we shall say that the heroes fight like Greeks." --Winston Churchill

Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Grand Prize, Theo Angelopoulos's deeply moving odyssey centers on Alexander (portrayed by Bruno Ganz of WINGS OF DESIRE), a celebrated Greek writer who, while terminally ill, focuses on one special last idyllic day. A poetic, haunting, and abundantly beautiful film, ETERNITY AND A DAY weaves an emotionally charged tale of love and life, where the past and the present come together to create a forceful yet eloquent message of hope for the future. Embarking on a dreamy and transcending voyage to relive an idealized time with his long lost wife at their beloved seaside retreat, his day is interrupted as he happens upon a lost and troubled eight year old boy whose future plight brings new meaning to Alexander's own journey into the past. Crossing paths at a special moment in time, the two strangers, man and boy, share a poignant life experience as one journey ends and a new one begins.

Nominated* for five Academy AwardsÂ(r), including Best Actress, Director and Original Screenplay, and featuring the OscarÂ(r)-winning* song "Never on Sunday," this "racy, arty comedy"(The Hollywood Reporter) is as intoxicating as fine Greek wine...and a "rambunctious" (Time) delight! Glasses are smashing, fingers are snapping and everyone's dancing to the sultry music of the bouzoukies! It's just another glorious moment in the carefree world of Illia (Melina Mercouri), Greece's most radiant lady of the night. Sensuous Illia adores her life, and every man in her seaport paradise adores her. But when Homer (Jules Dassin), a stuffy American intellectual, sails into town and tries to reform her, Illia shows him that she's one free spirit who's happy with her wild life and not about to be tamed. *1960: Original Song (won), Costume Design
Thirty-two years before My Big Fat Greek Wedding brought Greek-American culture to a mainstream audience, Never on Sunday took mainstream culture to Greece, with similarly popular results. Expatriate director Jules Dassin wrote, directed, and costars in this vibrant and (in retrospect) rather simple-minded celebration of good living, as embodied by the vivacious Melina Mercouri in the Cannes award-winning role of her career. She's Ilya, a fiercely independent prostitute who hand-picks her clientele, and Dassin plays Homer, an American intellectual enamored of all things Greek, and determined to steer Ilya onto the straight and moral path. He's out of his depth, of course; it's not long before his efforts are exposed as naively self-serving, and half the fun of Never on Sunday comes from watching Mercouri amiably deflect any attempt to dampen her indomitable spirit. Innocently good-natured by latter-day standards, Dassin's delightful film still retains its popular charm, and its familiar bouzouki theme is an irresistible invitation to join in the fun. --Jeff Shannon

True lies are given a historical spin in Eric Rohmer's invigoratingly ambitious Triple Agent. A period tragedy in the vein of the octogenarian French New Wave director's The Lady And The Duke, it's very loosely based on the true story of White Russian Army general Fyodor (Serge Renko) who played a triply duplicitous role as a spy in 30s France, deceiving not only Marxists, Soviets and Fascists but also his long-suffering wife Arsinoé (Katerina Didaskalou) until the forces of history finally caught up with him.
- Directed by Eric Rohmer, TRIPLE AGENT is a 1930s-era thriller that focuses on the activities of a devious Russian spy. Rohmer guides his cast through some though-provoking material as Marxists, Fascists, and other groups fall under the watchful gaze of the spy, with most of the action based on actual accounts of undercover activities from the period.

Sophocles' immortal tragedy Antigone receives a definitive cinematic interpretation in this 1961 film. Irene Papas (Z, The Trojan Women, The Guns Of Navarone) heads a cast of over 500 actors of the Greek stage and screen, joined by soldiers and horsemen of the Greek Royal Guard. Performing in the original Greek, Papas and, in particular, Manos Katrakis as the tyrannical Theban King Creon, embody Sophocles' timeless themes with earthy conviction and irresistible passion. In the aftermath of a bloody civil war that fatally pitted both her brothers against each other, Antigone (Papas), daughter of Oedipus, picks through the carnage outside the gates of Thebes in search of her fallen siblings' bodies. Vowing to bury both men, Antigone defies a direct edict from Thebes ' King Creon that Antigone's rebel brother remain unsanctioned for having led the insurrection. Antigone's defiance of Creon and devotion to her shattered family divides the city of Thebes, threatens her sister's betrothal to Creon's son and invokes the wrath of a king willing to defy the gods themselves to satisfy his selfish vengeance. But by condemning Antigone, Creon unwittingly doomed himself to a sentence far crueler than any punishment he could inflict on his enemies. While remaining faithful to the original text, director Georges Tzavellas interprets Antigone as an intimate black and white epic that recalls Orsen Welles' Macbeth and Laurence Oliver's filmed Hamlet. As relevant now as it was in the fourth century BC, Antigone's riche tapestry, love and fate comes vividly to life in this superior film adaption.
