Engrossing, well-made film
28 December 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie delivers everything I seek in cinema: Beautiful cinematography; artistic, engaging direction; thought-provoking. It's quiet,subtle, beautiful, at times intense and had me engrossed throughout. The set location and cinematography is as much a part of the story telling as the dialogue is, with quiet moments filled with cold, stark and beautiful landscapes that serve to enrich the feelings and situations conveyed by the characters, as well as providing a rich atmosphere. It's one of those rare movies that really pull you into another world, one which lingers and haunts you long after the movie has ended. I watched this film yesterday and am already wanting to revisit it.

Certain scenes made me feel uneasy, but rightfully so, given the subject matter. The sensitive story-line is conveyed well by all involved, enabling the viewer to empathize with both of the main characters instead of feeling alienated from them, which such a story could have easily done. I think it was a clever move to not linger upon or delve much into the complexities of the actual cloning process and to instead focus on the lives and emotions of the characters before and after that event. I do think the story would have benefited from spending more time on the development of the love felt between the two main characters. The director has said that they spent the whole summer together as children, yet this is not evident in the film. Still, I don't believe the movie suffered from this as the acting my Eva Green is strong enough to convey this aspect of the film.

The topic of human cloning is a controversial and complex one and that in this day and age - when it is not so much a sci-fi idea as opposed to a real possibility - deserves to be pondered upon. A fictional, two hour movie cannot hope to provide any real answer to any of the concerns posed by such a topic, but what this film manages to do is take on aspects of the topic and turn them into a quite beautiful and thoughtful work of art. 8/10.
