You must read it many times in order to discover all its dimensions.” Fred Zaugg, DER KLEINE BUND
    - “Only one Greek film that is totally different from the others The Triumph of Time demonstrated that avant-garde Greek cinema has acquired younger talented filmmakers. Beyond whatever technological achievements it has to show, the film is impressive due to the work done on its subject: a poetic and philosophical description of the journey of Don Quixote, together with Chaplin who films him, who tries to save civilization from the prehistoric mummy of destruction.” Ninos Mikelidis, ELEFTHEROTYPIA

A visual essay on the impact of money on humanity, it is a film that deserves more attention and which proves the potential of new technologies in the creation of a new kind of cinematic language. With this film, Mazomenos created a trilogy of philosophical essays by means of visual experimentations."
