Format: VHS Tape
The film starts and ends with the sight and sound of the sea and the voice of the mother of the main male character, the author (A). The sea rolls softly while the voice of the mother is penetrating. The authors wife, his daughter, his mother and his relatives are live their own lives which does not connect with A. In the opening scenes his most important relationship is described. As a child A and two other boy run into the sea. Later in the film A, as a middle aged, man goes back to an island he visited with these two boys . These parts form the frame of the film. The very focus is the interplay between the middle aged A and a 10 year old Albanian refugee boy. As in Angelopolous previous film, The Gaze of Odysseus, the film gives references to the rich Greece history.

Format: DVD
The most Bergmanesque of Angolopoulos's films. Simpler and less epic than most of his work, with fewer of his trademark breathtaking images and grand themes. Yet this story of a dying writer spending his last day before entering the hospital -- never to leave -- has a deeply elegiac melancholy, and his attempts to find meaning by saving an Albanian street urchin are often moving, if occasionally sappy. The same is true of Bruno Ganz' (unfortunately dubbed) relationship with his wife and family, told mainly in flashback. Much is moving, some is hokey and forced. But Ageloupolus' use of images to make film a poetic medium is always worth watching, even when flawed.

The Greek 'New Star' disc, only available a short while, was supervised by Angelopoulos, and is an improvement over the other available discs.

The movie captures the title magnificently. Very poetic. Angelopoulos avoids sentimentality while portraying Alexander's lonliness and isloation of man. The little Albanian boy's exile from his own people and the Greek Italian poet's barrier from his own people through lack of language forcing him to buy words for his poem are mirrored by the selling of Alexander's house and the selling of the boys. Photography is superb, with the absense of shadows very reminicent of Angelopoulos's other masterpiece, 'The Weeping Meadow'. Alexander is imprisoned in his environment though absense of relationships. This is his 'one day'.

This soundtrack is equally on a par to her soundtrack to Ulysses Gaze which is one of my favourite pieces of music, similar haunting tones which are very evocative and I found spine tingling at times. Was unsure about the spoken phase at the end, but other than that no complaints

A very remarkable film. An eloquent and honest picture of life. Its honesty is breath-taking. The music is superb. A film that will not be forgotten.
