Music for the Golden Palm winning film by Theo Angelopoulous, writt en by Eleni Karaindrou, whom Time magazine has hailed as 'Greece's most eleoquent living composer'. The worldwide success of Ulysses' Gaze has shown how convincingly Karaindrou's themes can take on a life of their own. Her melodies have been described as 'dark and brooding, redolent of red wine and the salty brine of the sea, at once plaintive and erotically lyrical.' Karaindrou's score for 'Eternity and a Day' makes poetic use of the instruments of Greek folk music, particularly the sound of the clarinet, keening in the mountain air, or hovering over a rich bourdon of strings.
