As a publicity stunt, she arranges a meeting with an American woman (Ellen Burstyn) who is serving a prison term for killing her own children. Features Mercouri performing “Medea” in the original, intercut with Burstyn narrating her crime.
Plot: Melina Mercouri plays Maya, a jet-setting Greek actress who returns to her homeland to undertake the role of Medea. Searching for inspiration and clues as to how a mother could kill the children she loves, Maya discovers Brenda (Ellen Burstyn), a bible-spouting American woman serving time in an Athens prison for that very crime.

Ms. Medea!
Early on in A Dream of Passion, the embattled Greek diva played by Melina Mercouri is accused of “reducing the tragedy of Medea to the level of Ms. Magazine!” Blindly oblivious to his own warning, writer/director Jules Dassin goes on to do precisely that for the next hour-and-a-half. The result is one of those irresistibly awful films that contrive, somehow, to be more compelling than most good ones.

Returning to her native Greece to shoot a film of Euripides’ tragedy, Mercouri’s jet-setting grande dame meets and becomes obsessed with a dowdy, Bible-spouting American housewife (Ellen Burstyn) who committed the crime of Medea in real life. In other words, she murdered her three children as a way to punish her unfaithful husband. As the two women meet, merge and swap identities, Dassin tries hard to navigate the tortuously trendy Life-Or-Art labyrinth so beloved of Ingmar Bergman and Carlos Saura.

Unfortunately, Dassin is far too lumpish and literal-minded a director for such high-falutin head games. Mercouri flings herself headlong into her role as a glamorous tragedienne. It is, truly, a piece of Acting in the Grand Manner. Burstyn, predictably, is much more subtle – or about as subtle as a deranged fundamentalist child-murderer can possibly be. Alas, the acting styles of the two ladies are so diametrically opposed, it’s impossible to picture them in the same universe, never mind the same film.

No matter. A Dream of Passion did hold me riveted throughout. If only for the mind-blowing, jaw-dropping pretentiousness on display!

Review By: dwingrove Rating: Date: 2004-04-19
Dream of Passion is larger than ordinary life, as befits Greek Tragedies.
See this film. It is provocative. It dares to challenge conventional ideas about womanhood, love, motherhood. It removes a level of denial that keeps us distant from the underlying truths that Greek Tragedy speaks to, especially the tale of Medea.

We live in a society that attempts to dictate and control, through manipulation and legislation, the role of women, to punish women for being visible victims of the hidden agendas of male supremacy and chauvinism. It is a society that sadly fails to understand, much less respect the powerful, passionate love and instincts that inform and drive the feminine half of our humanity. This failure contributes to a degraded quality of life, to the violence and the pain we see around us.

See this film. Mercouri and Burstyn are magnificent, each in her own way. They represent aspects of the feminine goddess, played out through different cultural lenses.
