Plot
It all began in Athens during the German occupation. A German woman, married to a Greek officer falls in love with a young Jew who delivers ice. Egged on by the supreme motive - that of winning the love of her life - the woman dies and is born again. In the course of her two lives, the world around her evolves. The story of the individual traverses history. A film on love. It could also be a thriller since it lies on the borderline between imagination and terror.
The film gets its title from the notorious "crystal nights", the first systematic, mass attack by bands of Nazis on Jewish shop windows in the Vienna of 1938. In the film symbolism and realism become one. But above all, Crystal Nights is a film about absolute love, about the love that overcomes the barriers of time, that swings magically between "always" and "never", that remains haughtily aloof when everything else bows down (in the Song of Songs it borders on religious worship). And it contains one of the most beautiful love scenes ever shot in the Greek cinema something like a mystical rite, like a flower of devotion to life.
