A post modern theater adaptation of a classic Greek tragedy takes place in a central theater of Athens. Like every night, the audience take their seats and the play begins. Suddenly, the lights on stage go out. A group of young people, dressed in black and carrying guns, come up on stage. They apologize for the interruption and invite people from the audience to participate on stage. The audience is captivated by the ambivalence, still not realizing if this is part of the play or not. The play resumes with a main difference; life imitates art and not vice versa. Written by Ray Meirovitz ( EZ Films )

Interruption is like a car crash; you can not look away. The best surprise I had for years!!!
21 September 2015 | by jeanrouchSee all my reviews

Interruption is about our society and our behavioral patterns as a species. It's about what is really happening. This film demonstrates a universal problem. We are all trapped. It is a film that raises all sorts of questions about the individual and the way he is forced to play a part in and it encapsulates these questions into a deceptively ancient tragedy plot. This film talks about the myths and lies we are told to maintain status quo and the appearance of stability and normality. It forces you to question the oddness and the parameters of your own existence. A life with roles unquestioned and unexplored leads to a stagnant swamp of disorientation. I can get if someone rejects it and does not get into this no mans world, it's not the most easy movie to watch, but I haven't been this pleasantly surprised in a long time. Saw this in the premiere and I believe most of the people there were absorbed by the screen and didn't want to see the film end. Intellectual, emotional, cruel, realistic and beautiful would be the words I would use to describe this picture. At first you don't really understand what's going on or where you're at, but soon find yourself submerged in this theater scene. This is definitely one of the most important indie films of the year; aside from the original and highly meaningful leveled story, the film if impeccably made with astounding performances. The lights in Venice turned on, the credits were running and everyone was quiet and searching for answers in others looks. Its best surprise that I've got in years. It is a hypnotic trip that displays brilliant originality and borderlines pure insanity. In my humble opinion, it is a film that should be watched by every single person, for the experience alone. Sadly, I'm almost certain that this film will never find a wide release, so, please do seek it out!!!
