Lost Horizon

Just watched Frank Capra's "Lost Horizon" - it completely took me by surprise, had not heard much about it (I am ashamed to admit) and I absolutely loved it. Easily one of the best films I have ever watched. They sure don't make them like that anymore...

Who ever has watched it and has not been moved by this movie might as well just give up, you are probably dead inside. And is it just me or there is a hint of "At the mountains of Madness" in there?  Hmmm...

Just discovered this poster for Brazil ( –  had seen this version before. Again another big inspiration for the “Winter” and without a doubt one my favorite movies of all time… one of a kind.

Kostas Karyotakis

Niko, our film's hero, likes nothing better than to lose himself in the writing and poetry of Kostas Karyotakis. The universe of Niko is not really that different from the one that this poet lived in. Another great source of inspiration for our movie.


Κι ἂν ἔσβησε σὰν ἴσκιος τ᾿ ὄνειρό μου,
κι ἂν ἔχασα γιὰ πάντα τὴ χαρά,
κι ἂν σέρνομαι στ᾿ ἀκάθαρτα τοῦ δρόμου,
πουλάκι μὲ σπασμένα τὰ φτερά·
κι ἂν ἔχει, πρὶν ἀνοίξει, τὸ λουλούδι
στὸν κῆπο τῆς καρδιᾶς μου μαραθεῖ,
τὸ λεύτερο ποὺ ἐσκέφτηκα τραγούδι
κι ἂν ξέρω πὼς ποτὲ δὲ θὰ εἰπωθεῖ·
κι ἂν ἔθαψα τὴν ἴδια τὴ ζωή μου
βαθιὰ μέσα στὸν πόνο ποὺ πονῶ --
καθάρια πὼς ταράζεται ἡ ψυχή μου
σὰ βλέπω τὸ μεγάλο οὐρανό,
ἡ θάλασσα σὰν ἔρχεται μεγάλη,
καὶ ὀγραίνοντας τὴν ἄμμο τὸ πρωί,
μοῦ λέει γιὰ κάποιο γνώριμο ἀκρογιάλι,
μοῦ λέει γιὰ κάποια πού ῾ζησα ζωή!

H.P. Lovecraft

“I have seen the dark universe yawning
Where the black planets roll without aim,
Where they roll in their horror unheeded,
Without knowledge, or lustre, or name.”
H.P. Lovecraft

 If I was to end my days on a remote island without any other companion but the works of a single author it would be H.P. Lovecraft. Deep inspiration for the Winter and a personal god of mine - he is finally getting the acknowledgement he never found in his lifetime. Cheers to you Sir.
