A moody, existentialist dissection of erotic obsession that will invigorate those who love avant-garde cinema.

Audience Reviews for Young Aphrodites

Director Nikos Koundouros' self-proclaimed tale of "ideological nothingness" is beautifully presented. Based on Daphnis & Chloe, it flows with an economy of dialog, relying instead on a rich visual presentation. Nikos is not at all shy with his symbolic use of animals; a domesticated fox, a young man butting heads with a ram, a huge dead pelican tied to a wooden cross... Koundouros spoke in interviews of Mikres Afrodites being a story of desperation. For me it is more about desire. Maybe the two, desperation and desire, are inseparable?

If everyone reads the Hellenistic period classic "Daphnis and Chloe",they will discover the extremely powerful sighs and emotional silences this movie brings,same premise as the book.A wonderful Greek film,a definite must amongst a glamorous and kitsch era in our then film production,sensational cinematography and pagan signs.
