| Retains a charm that so many films lack
"To Fos Pou Svinei" or "Fading Light" is a film which does not boast amazing effects or a detailed storyline, yet it somehow succeeds in providing an excellent viewing for anyone lucky enough to understand it. The story revolves around a school boy who has problems with his eyes and is reluctant to go to school. His only form of escapism is his violin, which he has been taught to play by an old man residing in a lighthouse. There aren't a great deal of developments, I must admit, but the storyline is touching nevertheless. The film was shot on a Greek island, so the scenery is beautiful and the images of the blue sea and harbour make the film what it is. The Greek charm is also present in the form of the film's soundtrack, which really fits in superbly. Unfortunately, this film will never be seen by nearly as many people as it should do and in many ways it makes for a much better viewing than the typical Hollywood blockbusters. Bottom line: If you speak Greek, watch this film.
