WORLDS APART REVIEWED
“Worlds Apart” is a three part story about the impact of Eros in our lives. Sure, the European debt crisis runs throughout the background of these stories. The film survives by its ability to blend Greek myth into modern heart. JK Simmon’s segment in the supermarket is the strongest section. While it could’ve stood on its own as a short film, it also underscores the point of the movie. Love survives.
Love survives if you’re poor, if the country is falling down around your ears or if you’re a stranger in a strange land. Americans might have a hard time connecting to the material due to being so removed. After all, our studio system has ran the modern romantic comedy so far into the ground that it’s almost in China. While it won’t play for younger audiences, I recommend giving it a stream before dismissing it. While a smaller feature, it’s well worth your time.

The Plot Thus Far
In modern-day Greece, while socioeconomic turmoil ravages Southern Europe, three distinct stories unfold, each representing a different generation of Greeks in love with a foreigner, each story coming together in the end to form a whole.
