Availability:: Usually Ships in 24 to 48 Hours
Product Code: BOTT

This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In Greek with English subtitles. The original Greek title of this film is To Homa Vaftike Kokkino.

One of the hallmarks of Greek cinema. In 1907, in the parts of Greece that are liberated, not all Greeks feel free and the biggest ranges of the Thessalian valley are owned by a few large landowners. The farmers who are forced to work like slaves find, in Marinos (Notis Peryalis), a well educated young man and their ideal representative. Odysseus (Nikos Kourkoulos), son of one of the landowners, supports Marinos and conflicts with his own father and brother, a conflict that will have tragic consequences.

Oscar-Nominated Movie + Good Supporting Actress July 12, 2016
Reviewer: Chris Kuykendall from Austin, TX United States  
Another Oscar-nominated movie, Best Foreign-Language Film, absent a commercial VHS or DVD. So MovieDetective's DVD-R release is quite welcome. I'm working backwards on a hobby of watching at least 50 movies per year of release, and second-guessing the Oscars. My 1966 alternative pick for supporting actress being Mary Chronopolou from this movie.
