Sophocles' immortal tragedy ANTIGONE receives a definitive cinematic interpretation in this 1961 film. In ancient Thebes, Greece, two brothers seeking the throne have slain each other in battle. Their father, King Creon (Manos Katrakis), mandates that one will be properly honored with a burial, while the other is left to rot in the elements. Creon's daughter, Antigone (Irene Papas), goes against her father's wishes and secretly buries her disgraced brother. Tragedy unfolds when the king discovers Antigone's misdeed and orders her imprisonment, along with her sister, Ismene (Maro Kontou)
