Read my spoiler-free movie review of Athena (2022).
One of the best teaser trailers I’ve seen in a while just landed. It’s for Athena, a brand new drama from acclaimed French director Romain Gavras, and the theme is – you’ll see.
Hello, beautifully engaging trailer edit. Greetings, stunning accompanying music and mysterious letters that turn into:
‘It is difficult to fight anger; for a man will buy revenge with his soul.’ _Heraclitus, 500 BCE
Just in case all the above wasn’t enough, the name Romain Gavras shows up in the above trailer. That excites me because he’s a director I remember most fondly for his thought-provoking work in M.IA.’s Born Free.
I can’t wait for more of all the elements that already work so well in this trailer. It’s unlikely to be ‘easy viewing’, of course. Especially considering the premise, which follows three siblings hours after the tragic death of the youngest brother.
Still, I can’t deny that I love a good vengeance story. What do you like most about this trailer? Do share in the comments below.
Athena stars Dali Benssalah, Alexis Manenti, Karim Lasmi, Anthony Bajon, Ouassini Embarek, Radostina Rogliano, Tarek Haddaji, Sami Slimane, Mehdi Abdelhakmi and Guy Donald Koukissa,
Happy Film Loving
