A Song Is Not Enough

A talented young actress is busted by the military junta in Greece in 1972 and spends more than a year in jail; while she's cooling her heels with a rogues' gallery of women prisoners, her husband strikes up a flirtation with her best friend and their nine-year-old daughter struggles to adjust to the situation. This debut feature by Greek writer-director Elissavet Chronopoulou jumps back and forth between this narrative, shot in black and white, and a color, present-tense frame in which the daughter, now grown, resolves to make contact with her mother after a long estrangement. Despite the political backdrop, the drama is strictly interpersonal, yet both plotlines are so slack that this 2003 film never picks up any momentum. In Greek with subtitles; the running time is about 110 minutes.
