Storyline

Synchronicity is a sensitive and thought-provoking portrayal of French quantum physicist Francois Martin and his relationship with synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence. The film relates Martin's transformation from hard-core physicist to someone who embraces synchronicity as an enriching gift. It follows him in intriguing encounters with, among others, a French puppeteer, a Tibetan Buddhist monk, and his own aging mother. Martin also meets scientists at the CERN particle accelerator in Switzerland, where he demonstrates the analogy he sees between quantum physics and synchronicity. Martin's gradual unpacking of the underlying interconnectedness between things, is interspersed with reconstructions of two fascinating instances of synchronicity from England and Finland, creating a film which invites viewers to open themselves up to the unexpected, to the delight of synchronicity.

Great movie, excellent intro to the subject, nice examples
14 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Great movie, excellent intro to the subject, nice examples! The relation to findings in quantum mechanics is there... the subject ties you to the future, otherwise you are tied to the past .... The link to the I Ching should have been implemented, maybe also to divination/oracles in general. I Ching used as an oracle is about encountering really the subject. The implicate order (Bohm) is unfolding. Everything is connected in a pattern: 'If you cut a blade of grass, you shake the universe'. Maybe refer to the global consciousness project. Try to meet the Occams Razor objection to the subject. In which modern movies is the subject as a phenomenon introduced?
