Videotaping the landscape from passenger’s side window.
Recording the route from Marathon to the centre of Athens.
The scenery is dominated by general confusion (the demolition
and erection of new buildings).
Nothing looks complete, organized or well-planned.
There is no urban planning.
This famous route doesn’t fit with it’s image.
The landscape alone creates the feeling of a circumstantial montage,
A montage that is offered as an introduction to music.
The movie loses its significance, offering as an exchange
the rhythm of today’s reality.
