The film


Theo Angelopoulos' first feature tells the compelling true story of a crime of passion. In a remote village in Northern Greece, a middle-aged woman and her lover murder her husband and bury the body in the garden. But as they attempt to flee the country, their escape plan fails and they return to the village just as the investigation into the husband's disappearance begins. Largely performed by the people of the village where the actual murder took place, The Reconstruction is a multi-layered study of a crime and of the wider problems facing Greek society, which marked Angelopoulos as a filmmaker of great talent and individuality.
