Rhoda drives her car looking at Earth 2 and crashes with composer John Burroughs, killing his pregnant wife and his baby son. Rhoda goes to prison and four years later she is released and moves to her parents' house. She finds a job as high-school janitor, but tries to commit suicide. She survives, however, and submits an essay to a contest where the prize is a ticket to travel to Earth 2. Meanwhile the scientists discover that Earth 2 is a mirror of Earth and the synchronicity between the dwellers was interrupted when the planets were seen by each other. One day, Rhoda decides to visit John Burroughs, whose life was destroyed after the death of his family, to admit to him that she had killed his family. However she does not have the nerve to tell him the truth. So she lies and tells him ... Written by

About 3 minutes into the movie right after Rhoda gets distracted from driving while looking at the sky, trying to find Earth II and the camera then cuts to John Burroughs' and his family in their BMW right before the accident happens, it is seen that they are on Beach St. Except the E isn't reflecting light as intense as the other letters are, so it reads 'Bach'. Johann Sebastian Bach is a famous German Baroque composer that lived in the 18th Century (1685-1750). John Burroughs is also a composer in the movie. See more »
Around 1:12:00 after Rhoda and John toast there is a shot of the house from the outside with Earth 2 at "Full Earth" - the entire face is lit. A second later a shot from inside the house of Earth 2 through a window shows a partially-full Earth 2. Earth 2 is not close enough for the apparent angle to cause a phase shift of this magnitude; Earth 2 still would have been a Full Earth when shown from inside the house. See more »
I saw this image when I was a kid. The photograph of Jupiter taken by NASAs Voyager. Beautiful. But nothing special until shown in rapid succession. Suddenly Jupiter was alive. Breathing. I was hypnotized.

This is not a commercial movie, but something like a documentary shot with a commercial movie like quality.
The storyline in the IMDb main page describes the premise of this movie, but thats not what this movie is about.
The other planet thing is just like the background music, its there for effect. Other Earth is all about beauty, the attention to detail and the simple yet delicate story.
Its a lot like those many many beautiful Japanese movies (Tokyo Story comes to my mind, though I have to say its not as good as that). Its a beautiful journey, and when its done you lie back and think about its beauty.
This movie is highly recommended if you enjoy simple movies like those.
This is not a sci-fi and even the logic behind the other planet is too far fetched and they don't even hide it, they never go into any scientific details. There is also no action, nor is it a thriller.
