Landscape in the Mist (Greek: Τοπίο στην ομίχλη, translit. Topio stin omichli) is a 1988 Greek film directed by Theo Angelopoulos.


The movie portrays the journey of two children in search of their father, whom they believe lives in Germany. On the way they meet many people, including a troupe of actors (a reference to Angelopoulos' early movie The Travelling Players), and encounter dangers. Eventually, they cross a river thinking they have reached their hoped-for destination.
