In old times in Greece, there was a cinema that was characterized as melodrama because it was only addressed to the feeling of the spectator and there was very crying. He remained in history as the cinema of Martha Vourtsi. It was the so-called commercial cinema. Later, when cinema became governmental ( greek film center ) and was primed, it launched another cinema that was addressed only in the mind of the viewer. It was the so-called cinema of alienation.
It stayed in history as tholokoultouriarikos. Movies that appeal to the minds but also to the feeling of the viewer have not been in Greece, apart from some movies made by some independent directors.
