Worlds Apart: (2015)
A perfect title for an interesting story. People in life meet, love, hurt and get hurt then move on. Never wondered how or why we come across each other!
This is the core here, 3 different stories unexpectedly tangled in Greece. 3 couples encounter love during some economic crisis. To me, it didn’t really matter how they met… they came from different worlds which means different cultures, believes, habits and concepts… yet the heart is the same! The heart is where they united and sparked passing over the language barrier with no clue how they will end up forming one whole big story.
My favorite couple were the elderly… longing for love after being lonely for years. Loneliness of course can occur even if you are in your family or within many people. It is the disconnection between you and them that imprison you in your own space and thoughts and frustrated expectations. These kinds of coincidences is so lovely …and lovely they were and humorous as they were trying to speak each other’s language. I loved how they proved the necessity of a second chance in life… and here I quote the great J.K Simmons as he was naming the many kinds of love “ …and then there is the love of second chance”. Hell Yeah ! I know exactly what that means !!!!!
This movie is highly recommended… despite the drama, It is a movie to see more than once with the same exact feeling, or maybe it’s just me.
