Electra (1962) - Irene Papas DVD
From "one of the world's most talented filmmakers" (Los Angeles Times) comes this riveting, Oscar®-nominated retelling of Euripides' searing classic. Written, produced and directed by Michael Cacoyannis (Stella, Zorba the Greek), and starring legendary Greek beauty Irene Papas (The Trojan Women), Electra is "majestic and awesome" (The New York Times) - "a truly powerful and visually impressive picture" (Boxoffice).
Desolation and despair reign supreme in the kingdom of Mycenae: The great Agamemnon has been brutally murdered; his son Orestes has fled to an unknown land; and his daughter Electra has been imprisoned within the very walls of the castle she once loved so well. All hope seems lost... until the sacred oracle speaks and replaces Electra's broken spirit with an unquenchable desire for justice and bloody vengeance !
