APPLES PREMIERES TO HIGH PRAISE AT VENICE FILM FESTIVAL

4 September 2020

Apples, directed by Christos Nikou, premiered in Venice Film Festival as the opening Orizzonti film. The filmmaking team, including Nikou and actress Sofia Georgovassili, as well as festival director Alberto Barbera, were present for the screening and the red carpet.

Reviews of the film have been highly praiseful of Nikou’s debut:

VARIETY/ Peter Debruge: SOULFULLY RELEVANT

SCREEN INTERNATIONAL/ Wendy Ide: SOMETHING SPECIAL. HUGELY ACCOMPLISHED.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER/ David Rooney: ARRESTING. SOMBER AND SURREAL, THIS IS A HAUNTING MEDITATION ON THE MANIPULATION OF MEMORY. CHRISTOS NIKOU ESTABLISHES HIMSELF AS AN EXCITING NEW VOICE.

THE GUARDIAN/ Xan Brooks: FOUR STARS. SPLENDIDLY POIGNANT.

CINEUROPA/ Kaleem Aftab: A SENSIBILITY AND AESTHETIC REMINISCENT OF THE WORLDS CREATED BY CHARLIE KAUFMAN, MICHEL GONDRY OR SPIKE JONZE.

THIS DEBUT FILM DOES DESERVE SUCH HIGH PRAISE.
