Dark, troubling and not to be missed.
I can already see the American remake, directed perhaps by David Fincher, (though I would hope they leave well enough alone). “The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea” is a kind of police procedural set in Mesolongi, one of the lesser known parts of Greece and definitely off the tourist trail, that centres on the lives of two women, the female chief of police whose involvement in a terrorist raid in Athens ten years earlier has lead her here, and Rita, who does what menial jobs she can to get by. After a death in the town, their lives intersect.
This Greek movie works both as a dark thriller and as a troubling psychological picture of damaged lives. Both Elisabeth, the police chief, (Angeliki Papoulia), and Rita, (Youla Boudali), have reasons to be fearful and to hate their lives and anyone, on either side of the law, seems like the kind of person you would neither want to know or trust; there is something very unwholesome in Mesolongi. Syllas Tzoumerkas’ picture makes the films of Yorgos Lanthimos feel like a walk in the park. This may be the first of his films I’ve seen but I certainly hope it won’t be the last.
Promising movie yet badly executed
A nice opening scene and great location / scene setting for such a film that attempts to bring many genres into play. The cinematography is good and there are some powerful moments where everything seems to come together for a while. Yet it fails to hit the right spots. The incident with an attempted rape was never connected to the main plot. Promising characters remained undeveloped and remote. The lighting was artificial and unnatural as well as many of the choices on clothing (The chief of Police appears in leather and high heels for the most part of the film, while in another scene dressed in exotic robe, and overall behaving and speaking out of line with the script which a more realistic character would deliver). Also the story did not work well. I was patient enough for the most part and i welcomed the murder element, almost half way into the film, but it all went downhill afterwards, no character development, weak plot, too easy of a riddle, overall incomprehensive and poorly thought out. Finally, some of the music that was chosen was powerful and served well. Had this movie employed some of these means to deliver the message, i would have allowed even 2 or 3 hours to develop. Had the story developed to an interesting thread of suspense and mystery, it would have been aa great spine for a series.
