Meteora

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be a monastic, or even better – what it would be like to fall in love in a monastic…nun – here’s the perfect movie for you.

Meteora comes from Greek director Spiros Stathoulopoulos and as you already guess it’s one of the titles in competition for Golden Bear statue at the Berlinale 2012.

As you’ll see from this trailer and clips, Meteora is anything but boring movie. And, these images are really…well, look – this nature is simply amazing!

In the hot plains of central Greece, the Orthodox monasteries of Meteora are perched atop sandstone pillars, suspended between heaven and earth. And that’s where our story starts…

Meteora

The young monk Theodoros, played by Theo Alexander and the nun Urania played by Tamila Koulieva have devoted their lives to the strict rituals and practices of their community.

A growing affection for one another puts their monastic life under question. Torn between spiritual devotion and their human desire, they must decide which path to follow.

Based on what I saw, this could be one of my most favorite movies this year. I really like the plot, I think it looks both artistic and philosophical and the most important thing – it makes you wonder. What if you were in this kind of situation?
