Review:

Writer Georgios Vizyenos is admitted to a mental asylum in Athens at the end of the 19th century, in large part the result of his passionate but loving obsession for a 12-year-old girl named Bettina. Reality and fiction are confused in his mind. He struggles to recall memories from his childhood in Constantinople and Thrace and reads through his earlier published literary work, which he had based on those memories. The main focus of his reminiscences is his grandfather, who spent the first 10 years of his life disguised as a girl. His family was obliged to hide their child's gender to protect him from being forced to serve in the Turkish army. Vizyenos's psyche, we learn, has been powerfully influenced by his grandfather - the grim fate he avoided and the way he lived the rest of his life in fairy tales and dreams. This juxtaposition of hopes and fears, secrets and imagination, informed the whole of Vizyenos' work. - www.hollywood.com
