A poignant and harrowing account of the rise and fall of Napoleon Lapathiotis (1888-1944), Greece's most esteemed poet. Acclaimed director Takis Spetsiotis conveys, with sensitive daring and finesse, the poet's life as a romantic charmer, literary genius, communist sympathizer, depraved drug addict and, most importantly, as a national icon whose openly gay lifestyle created a scandal in conservative Athenian society.

With his award winning sets, stunning costumes and lush photography, Spetsiotis successfully recreates the magic of Athenian bohemian life with its blues singers, junkies, left wing politicos and sexual liberators.

Winner of four awards at he Greek equivalent of the Oscars, Thessaloniki Film Festival, 1985, including best actor, Meteor And Shadow is a moving and visually striking decent into the horrors of a troubled soul that speaks volumes on the complex and sometimes destructive relationship between an artist's personal life and his public creations.
