Nur über meine Leiche
(Over My Dead Body)


Nur über meine Leiche (Over My Dead Body) is a 1995 German film directed by Rainer Matsutani, starring actors Christoph M. Ohrt , Katja Riemann, Ulrike Folkerts and Julia Brendler. The movie blends comedy with romance, as well as fantasy elements.

Nikos’s music contributes to the creation of different moods in the film. He creates lighter, playful motifs to capture its comic features, darker, strong and majestic tones highlighting the fantasy element and sweet, melodic, with controversial surprises, moods to accompany the romantic element. Nikos balances equally the comic and the suspenseful character of the movie.

For his soundtrack, Nikos was honored with the Federal Cinema Music Award at Filmmusiktage, Bonn, 1995.
