My relationship with this movie is very special. Mr Bernstein visited the island of Corfu on May 2018 in order to visit the university I graduated from, Ionian University. The island was so charming that he decided to premiere his las feature film not in Athans but in Corfu. Everbody was very happy to watch the movie on the island. Then, my dear professor sent me an e-mail and told me that the movie needed to be subtitled immediately. So we decided to accept the challenge. We did the subtiling in 3 days without sleeping, eating and having to go to work every afternoon. I loved the movie so much that I could not resist. First of all, the script was magnificent. It was a pleasure to translate a high quality script that had so many intertextual references which you have to spot.
All in all, the movie had its own symmetry and geometry. A movie speaking about life with all its all the joys and sorrows. A poet filled with a lust for life being exploited by everybody, all the social institutions, trying to take advantage of him, to make him feel mad and guilty because he can to bear the weight of such a cruel world. So he writes about life in a poetic way incessantly in order to find excitement.
I was staring through the cage of those meticulous ink strokes - at an absolute beauty.
