Original vs Remake: Hollywood’s Need to Retell the Story (or the Lack Thereof)

Poster 2.png

“The World of Apu” is a bimonthly, diverse, and multilingual online film magazine which explores film cultures from around the world.

Below you can find my analysis on a few international films, not particularly well-known ones, that have spawned renowned Hollywood successes (whether critical or commercial). Maybe I can get you to watch either or both of them, and then get you to ask if the Hollywood remake added to the existing film it was indeed necessary.

I got hooked with the TV and Film production immediately after school. Working and studying it at the same time, I managed to go through various Production and Postproduction stages in the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation. After years of work, and after having finished my Bachelor in Communication I went to the U.K. to specialise in visual effects by doing my Masters Degree and by being certified in Video Editing by Apple. In 2011, I won the "Nostimon Imar" Award (Best Greek Director Abroad) for my short film "Ithaca" that I wrote, edited and directed. The following year, I donated my documentary "Asperger Syndrome: Myths & Reality" to the National Autistic Society in the U.K. I live and work in the U.K. as freelance Video Editor and Camera Operator in corporate videos, fashion shows, and documentaries. Furthermore, I am doing my PhD in Film at the University of Nottingham.
