Storyline

In a restless Athens against the backdrop of Greece's socio-economic collapse, three vivid stories of intercultural romance intertwine, depicting the turmoil and the inner sadness of a country amid a ceaseless explosion of immigration and financial meltdown. In this colourful triptych of love, the Syrian refugee, Farris, saves a damsel in distress, the idealist college student, Daphne, as a seemingly endless wave of fervent nationalism spreads in town. Then, in the following segment, Giorgos, an unhappily-married, pill-popping sales manager, delves deep into an unexpected affair with Elise, the frigidly beautiful Scandinavian corporate executive. Finally, Maria, a wistful Greek housewife whose family is struggling to keep afloat, has a fateful encounter with the retired German expatriate, Sebastian, who offers Maria a second chance in love before the well-stocked aisles of a local supermarket. In the end, can love transcend all barriers? Written by Nick Riganas

Unexpectedly brilliant! Racism-Violence-Economic Crisis- ALL in a country that search for "LOVE"
15 September 2017 | by andreasboubSee all my reviews

I must say that im not a fan of Christophoros Papakaliatis. I did watch his previous movies and i was disappointed. Well, this movie made me change my mind.

Many years have been since the director made his last movie, and "Worlds Apart" came out on the year 2015 with really high expectations. Personally, i didn't expect this (greek) masterpiece. Christoph Papakaliatis made a movie with high emotions, really good sound design and great characters. Of course the movie doesn't compete the high budget Hollywood films, but for the Greek cinema company is a big step!

Hopefully, there are going to be many other "quality" movies as this one...

I recommend this movie to the ones who want to know what is really going on today(politcs,economy etc) in Greece.
