Trama e commenti: «El Greco è un film del 2007 diretto da Yannis Smaragdis e basato sulla vita del pittore greco El Greco».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - cineparaleer - - - - - - - - - - «...El Greco plays on the theme of light versus darkness in the context of the Spanish Inquisition, during which the film is set. This thematic interplay also makes reference to El Greco’s art and his ability to stand by his ideals in the face of the Church, which seeks to destroy him. However, the film unfortunately fails to make the profound commentary it would have liked to due to its predictability and cliché-ridden script. Based on the Greek biography of the artist, El Greco: The Painter of God by Dimitris Siatopoulos, it’s clear that this is one story that never should have been told in English. While British actor Nick Ashdon in the lead role is convincing enough, the rest of the cast have a hard time making the dialogue sound believable. The result is an overacted melodrama in which the moments intended to be the most heart wrenching are actually the most ridiculous...» (Erene Stergiopoulos).
