Storyline

Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

When Adam is Up-side his hair should be falling upward toward Down Under, like that of anyone being held upside down. (before he goes up-side he sprays his hair with hairspray to keep it from falling up.) See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Adam: The universe, so full of wonders. I could spend hours and hours looking up at the sky. So many stars, so many mysteries. And there's one very special star that makes me think of one very special person. Now let me tell you my story.

Stupid beyond words
9 March 2013 | by (East Goofitania) – See all my reviews

This movie might possibly be enjoyed if the sound is off, as the visuals and CG are quite beautiful. There has been a lot of effort expended on the movies appearance. Unfortunately, it's a complete waste.

If you like cynically criticising cinematic stupidity while drinking with friends, this movie will prove very entertaining.

Otherwise, if you are capable of finding IMDb and reading reviews, then it is highly unlikely this movie will not enrage you. The endless amount of loose ends, partial explanations, annoying narration, shallow dialogue, poor acting ... just raises the question of why? Beautiful, but relentlessly stupid.
