An article published on The Telegraph site focuses on the locations in Greece where the film “The Two Faces of January” was shot, featuring a video where Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen discuss how they fell in love with these amazing places.
According to Hossein Amini, writer and director of the acclaimed thriller that was released on May, it is the first time that a film crew has been allowed at the Acropolis since in 1988. Other Athenian locations to appear in the film, according to the Telegraph, include the docks at Piraeus, the ancient Agora, and the market district of Monastiraki.
Crete also features prominently. Locations include the ruins of Knossos as well as the cities of Chania, and Iraklion.
“If you find the right locations, all you have to do is point the camera,” said producer Tim Bevan.
Set in 1962, the film explores the evolving relationship between a charismatic con artist (Viggo Mortensen), his alluring wife (Kirsten Dunst) and a stranger (Oscar Isaac) who flee to Athens after one of them is caught up in the death of a private detective.
