Story about good, evil and love
25 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

I have a couple of questions for you. Do you like Melancholia? Do you like Harjunpää ja pahan pappi? Do you like art movies? Visual experiences? Sci-fi movies? If you answered yes even a one question you need to watch Apeiron.

Although I don't normally like sci-fi at all, I liked Apeiron a lot. So if you hesitate to watch this movie, stop and watch it. And if you normally don't like Finnish movies... Watch Apeiron. If you don't know it, you don't even notice that Apeiron is Finnish movie.

Apeiron is full art experience. Visual appearance, unbelievable sounds and compositions, beautifully and movingly described feelings. Everything is on point.

Apeiron is at the same time love story, growth story and story of good and evil. Apeiron makes you think.
