With one of the best comedies of all time (for many critics it is considered the best), the «Το Αδελφάτο των Ιπποτών της Ελεεινής Τραπέζης» Monty Python And The Holy Grail (1975)), The Philoproodos Association of Kozani continues its winter screenings, this Monday 15 November 2021 in the upper hall of the cinema "Olympian», at 9:30 the evening. Directed by them Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones on a screenplay by all of Monty Python, has as their protagonists: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idl, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin,
The film uniquely undertakes and succeeds in satirizing the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round (Ελεεινής) Bank, in their search for the Holy Grail. The Monty Python, already known, in England for their caustic and grotesque humor, with which they comment on the bad texts and the habits of British society, from the queue Flying Circus on the BBC, tackle the Medieval tradition. Imitating the hard medieval years and the myths that follow them, in the era of the 10th Century AD. and from the beginning titles to its unexpected finale, the film is a guarantee, for plenty of laughter…
The film was shot mainly in Scotland and the castles shown in the film are Doune Castle (in Scotland), the privately owned Castle Stalker (also in Scotland), the Kidwelly Castle (in South Wales) and Bodiam Castle (in East Sussex, in England).
The most apt comment that has been written about this film is "It is inconceivable that the minds of six people thought so many stalks gathered and, even worse, that all these stalks are hilarious funny ". The humour, in general, does not make sense, and for this the play is considered one of the best comedies of all time: makes you fall under the laughter without even understanding why you are laughing.
Trying to analyze conventional elements of a film, such as acting and directing, in this film it is purely inappropriate. After all, according to the start titles, the film was directed by lama and other related genres. All the work here is the unthinkable scenario, that bombards you mercilessly with jokes until you can take it no more. Directed by Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones, two of the six Pythons, however, puts her ε hand on all the paranoia, taking advantage of the low budget and the madness of its creators.
Many have tried to create a film with a similar humor to this one here, but no one succeeded to the same degree. Monty Python humor is unrelated, spontaneous, refined coarsely chopped, simple, simple and unpretentious, and yet so hilarious. Inspiration and imagination simply have no limits and no end, with the prevailing logic being “whatever,what comes to mind we put it ". But the fact that (almost) everything that came to their mind and made them make millions of viewers laugh for almost five decades, is the real magic of Monty Python!
And our screenings will follow the protocol that applies to the screenings of the "Olympion" cinema, which is characterized as a mixed area and entry is allowed to vaccinated, with demonstration of the vaccination certificate, and with rapid test for the unvaccinated.
