He studied law in Greece and literature and cinema at the Institute of Advanced Cinematographic Studies (IDHEC) in Paris. Between 1964 and 1967 he devoted his time to film criticism in his country and in 1968 he began his own filmography, which was to be considered as one of the most emblematic representations of European auteur cinema.
