Three films, a trilogy. A poetic summing up of the century that just ended. Three films that are, however, autonomous. A story that begins in Odessa in 1919 with the entry of the Red Army into the city and ends in present-day New York. Exile, separation, wandering, the end of ideologies, and the constant trials of history. One will recognize traces from «Oedipus rex» and «Seven against Thebes» in the course of a love affair and the fate of a woman. It is the first time since Reconstruction (1970) that the pivotal figure in a film of mine is a woman. A child who knows exile and death, a love-struck adolescent, a mother, a solitary woman. More than at any other time before, an elegy on human fate. (Theo Angelopoulos)
