Apples is intriguingly deadpan and sometimes funny, though I couldn’t help feeling that it is also contrived, and even a bit flippant...

The film’s black, blank comedy is always offset by a sombre wistfulness.

Much warmer and more forgiving than anything from Lanthimos...

While occasionally too muted for its own good, Apples does benefit from not pushing its quirk factor too hard...

The droll Twilight Zone absurdism is not without its pleasures, many of them comic.

While Nikou skins this story with great tenderness, Apples ends without ever finding its core.

It’s a tender but slight debut from Nikou, though certainly signals him as a filmmaker to keep an eye on.

Nikou has fully worked out his central allegory... but the ostensible emotional core of the film is left frustratingly one-dimensional.

(Nikou's) voice feels distinct, more mature than those found in the disruptive debuts of his Greek peers.
