"There's something resonant and recognisable in its tale of literally learning how to live again in the wake of disorienting trauma."—Guy Lodge, Film of the Week

"It's a deadpan tragicomedy that mixes the playful and the poignant in a manner as tasty as a spitter - the bittersweet apples treasured by cidermakers as the perfect fuel for fermentation."—Mark Kermode, Observer (UK)

"So much of Apples and its meaning is open to alternative interpretations, and this imprints it in your memory - it's a cult film in the making."—Alexa Dalby, Dog and Wolf

Amidst a worldwide pandemic that causes sudden amnesia, middle-aged Aris (Aris Servetalis) finds himself enrolled in a recovery program designed to help unclaimed patients build new identities. Prescribed daily tasks on cassette tapes so he can create new memories and document them on camera, Aris slides back into ordinary life, meeting Anna (Sofia Georgovasili), a woman who is also in recovery. Through images deadpan, strange and surreal, Greek writer-director Christos Nikou posits a beguiling reflection on memory, identity, and loss, exploring how a society might handle an irreversible epidemic through one man's story of self-discovery. Are we the sum of the images we compile and display of ourselves, or are we something richer, and deeper?
