Theo Angelopoulos, "LANDSCAPE IN THE MIST"

Voula and Alexandros are two brothers whose father works as an immigrant in Germany. At least that's what their mother tells them, whenever they ask after him. One day they get onto a train which, they believe, will take them to him. But their journey does not seem to materialise. Their destination keeps moving further away from them, as they become involved in a incessant conformation to reality, which delays them at various intermediate stations along the way. After a harsh journey through life and into adulthood, they will reach that border beyond which they believe they will finally find a father, who, for them, will represent some kind of hope...
