“Worlds Apart” was a mega film from 2016 at the Greece box office.

Now American gets a chance to see “Worlds Apart.”


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.


Christopher Papakaliatis-Actor (Giorgos) Director, Writer, Producer.

J.K. Simmons-Sebastian

Andrea Oswart-Elise

Maria Kavoyianni-Maria

Minas Hatzisavvas – Antonis

Tawfeek Barhom – Farris

Niki Vakali – Daphne

Odysseas Papaspiliopoulos – Odysseas

Nikos Chatzopoulos – Ilias

“Worlds Apart” has an ensemble cast of wonderful actors. J.K. Simmons won an academy award for the film “Whiplash.” The other actors aren’t as well known in the United States, but I do think they will get a following in this country

Terra’s Opinion

This film has an amazing cast and an amazing plot. A finely choreographed dance that culminates to an almost painful crescendo.

There are three stories going on here. When I first viewed “Worlds Apart,” I was put out by how long it took to get back to the first story. I was really interested in it. Then, I saw what was going on and the film became of even more interest.

Along with some great acting, Christopher Papakaliatis is a standout since is was so hands on, he really shaped the film. He also happeneds to be extremely good looking.

The story is not a pretty one, but it has it’s tender moments and they are pure gold. The story I really like it the story of Sebastian (J.K. Simmons and  Maria (Maria Kavoyianni).

The Character of Farris (Tawfeek Barhom) is charming and played so well by Barhom.

5/5  100% for this fine film.

Always interested in a good indie film, my taste run towards Horror and documentaries. Rom-coms are my least favorite genre, but I will always take a look for the better good of the site. I've reviewed films for seven years and want to do it for about 20 more...we will see.
