    Village Voice Michael Atkinson

    The Weeping Meadow shares the awed sense of solemn apocalypse with his (Angelopoulos)signature films, but it's lighter, more musical and folktale-ish.

    The New Yorker Anthony Lane

    How can one not revere a movie director who causes the printers of travel brochures to cry out in distress? The Greece of sun, sand, and sea is not open for business here, Angelopoulos having decided that grandeur, grief, and grayness are more his line of work.

    The Hollywood Reporter Richard James Havis

    It's a typically poetic film, rich in powerful imagery, which sees a bitter personal tragedy unfold against the major events of 20th century Greece.
