Trivia

There is another nod to Stanley Kubrick, when Zack puts the magnet down the back of his trousers, one girl appears behind him in the corridor, then another. This is a reference to Kubrick's 1980 adaptation of Stephen King's novel, The Shining. See more »

Goofs

One of three matches selected by Ministry of Partnership, Helen Malzin, is from Germany. The profile information on the computer screen showed the GDR, the country abbreviation for German Democratic Republic, which is informally known as East Germany.

The proper abbreviation would read as FRG, Federal Republic of Germany. See more »

Affinities, Serendipity, Resonance, Universal Code, and more, all in one film.
23 May 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Although from the synopsis I thought this was not the kind of film I can enjoy, I decided to watch it after reading the (at the moment only) review, by Christian. I must say, he was right. This film is great! It had my complete attention from beginning to end. It is funny, original, mysterious, intelligent, intriguing, sweet, sad, mental, philosophical, emotional, from time to time thrilling. There are names of fictional characters which recall names of famous geniuses, and sort of gags/tributes to them, which to be fully enjoyed require you to at least know, for example, who Isac Newton was and how important for him things like weight/gravity and apples were. And probably if you are a somehow philosophical/mental type you may enjoy some aspects of this film differently. But I am sure that whatever kind of person you are, this film will give you much. And you will not forget it.

If the apparently complicated conversations about philosophical themes sometime confuse you, do not try to follow them. They are there to make you smile, so smile of their complexity, and enjoy the whole of the film, the romance, the comedy, the drama, the mystery. This film is really different. Oh. It was a long time that I was not so deeply and lightly and fully and gently pleased by a movie. The actors are also very good.

Somehow this film reminds me of "Waking Life" and of "I Love Huckabees", for its mixture of mentality and emotionality and comedy.

I do not give it a 10 just because nobody is perfect :D And like Christian wrote: please watch it! Please for you, not for me. Because you will like it. So do not miss this opportunity!
