Storyline

Warner De Santis, a cosmologist obsessed with trying to hear God back in time at the "Origin of the Universe," gets fired from NASA, drives to the Mojave Desert, crashes his car, and remains in a small mining town until his car is fixed. There, Warner encounters persons that might be "spirit messengers." Taking their words as instructions, he goes on a mission to find what the Native Americans regard as the "Place of Origin." In the end, Warner finds in the ordinary world, close at hand, the spiritual meaning that escaped his reaching into the distance of space and time. Written by Dominique De Fazio

The movie ends, and the audience was sitting in complete silence even after the credits!
8 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie is not just a movie, it is story telling par excellence.

I've read the screenplay and was in shock how careful and perfect words can be picked and what every single line was able to evoke in my mind and also sensually.

I've seen the movie several times and will never ever get tired of watching it. Every time seeing it the different layers of the story bring me to different places and let me notice different things - not only about the movie itself - about my own life, my longings, dreams and believes. Where ever I stand at the moment, this movie has to tell me something. (Sounds weirded? Yes, maybe. And: this is my experience!)

Can't wait for the directors DVD set to come out to finally see the deleted scenes and subplots.

If you are interested in life, the nature of human beings, quantum physics, philosophy, religion, and the big questions in life, this movie is definitely a must see and you will personally benefit from entering its world.
