Miklós Jancsó’s -ELECTRA, MY LOVE – issued on dvd

Many years after the death of her father Agamemnon, at the hands of the tyrant Aegisthus , oppressed Electra seeks revenge by inspiring the people to rebel against Aegisthus and end his cruel reign once and for all.

An expert in the symbolic expression of forbidden political ideas, Jancsó here radically reworks the ancient Greek myth as a philosophical reflection on the dialectics of power and oppression.
