Summary

A poignant and harrowing account of the rise and fall of Napoleon Lapathiotis, Greece's most esteemed poet. Acclaimed director Takis Spetsiotis conveys with sensitive daring finesse the poet's life as a romantic charmer, literary genius, communist sympathizer, depraved drug addict and, most importantly, as a national icon whose openly gay lifestyle created a scandal in conservative Athenian society. Winner of four awards, including Best Actor at the 1985 Thessaloniki Film Festival, METEOR AND SHADOW is a moving and visually striking decent into the horrors of troubled soul that speaks volumes on the complex and sometimes destructive relationship between an artist's personal life and his public creations.
