Landscape in the Mist ★★★ Topio Stin Omichli 1988

A stark Greek landscape in a rainy winter sets the scene for a tragic search by two children for their unknown father. Relies heavily on symbolism to make its point about unfulfilled desire (including the film's imaginary German-Greek border). In Greek with English subtitles. 126m/C VHS, DVD .
