Blog for Lines by Arianna Ling , analysing the movie!

Lines was really masterful in showcasing what Greece is going through in this crisis, and the reactions that people of all demographics have. It showed that through it all, each person was suffering in their own ways and did not know quite how to overcome it. There are many ways to perceive the actions committed by the characters in the film, such as whether or not they lost honor or gained honor by removing their clothing. Depending on one’s mindset, they could see these characters as being cowardly and delicate, bringing dishonor to both themselves and to Greece. Others could see them as upholding Greek honor and letting philotimo shine through their every move. As the discourse of Greece changes, these meanings might change as well.
