Ulysses' Gaze (To Vlemma tou Odyssea) (1995) is a film directed by Theo Angelopoulos.


An exiled Greek filmmaker is returning home and sets out on an epic journey across the battered Balkans in search of three lost reels of film by the Manakis brothers, the pioneering photographers who introduced movies into the Balkans at the beginning of the century.

The search for the reels of film works as a metaphor for a search for the common history of the Balkan countries.
