Athens International Film Festival invites you to solve the crime in «Gosford Park»

The Athens International Film Festival continues its Saturday film dates at Cinobo OPERA with one of the best films of the great Robert Altman and the entire 00s decade: Oscar-winning for Original Screenplay, and nominated for six more gold statuettes, Gosford Park is hosted for a one-time only screening with a digitally restored print, this coming Saturday, February 3rd.

Wanting to keep alive the memory of the historic cinema that a few days ago ingloriously and forever interrupted its operation, the Athens International Film Festival honours the new cycle of screenings called IDEAL NIGHTS and invites you to watch (or re-watch) modern film classics in restored digital copies, most of which will be screened for the first time in Greece. At the same time, it enthusiastically welcomes the reopening of the OPERA cinema (now known as Cinobo OPERA), a cinema closely intertwined with the recent run of the Athens International Film Festival, and looks forward to meeting its audience there again.

The scheduled films will be announced gradually and screened at regular intervals. Second screening of the new year is the much loved GOSFORD PARK in digital restoration.

A few words about the film

 

During a weekend in 1932, a crowd of nobles gather at an aristocratic mansion in the English countryside to attend a party. But as soon as night falls and the clock strikes midnight, someone is mysteriously murdered, the guests and all the servants are automatically put on the suspect list and a police inspector soon rushes in to try to find the perpetrator.

Written like a gripping Agatha Christie mystery, directed with sharp irony and delightfully performed with the help of one of the most enviable casts of actors ever assembled in a film, “Gosford Park” is an admirable combination of police intrigue, black comedy, social satire and poignant class drama. Oscar for Best Original Screenplay (to the creator who would go on to make the huge TV hit "Downton Abbey" a few years later), 6 other nominations (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress for Maggie Smith, Best Supporting Actress for Helen Mirren, Costume Design and Art Direction), numerous other awards and respectable box office success helped Altman deliver, albeit so late in his career, one of his masterpieces.
