A graduate student, Ian Gray, is researching the evolution of human eyes with Karen and Kenny, in order to discredit creationists by proving that eyes have evolved. Seven years later, when the hospital takes an iris scan of his son and enters into the database, they appear to match with another person's eyes, which suggested that their son may be some sort of reincarnation of the deceased man.

[first lines]
Ian: Every living person on this planet has their own unique pair eyes. Each their own universe. My name is Doctor Ian Gray. I'm a father, and husband, and I'm a scientist. When I was a child, I realized that the camera was designed exactly like the human eye, taking in light through a lens, forming it into images. I began taking as many pictures of eyes as I possibly could. I'd like to tell you the story of the eyes that changed my world.

14 December 2014 | by (Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Amazing... Like this movie very much. Well played actors, especially liked the game Astrid Bergès-Frisbey and Brit Marling, which is known to me yet another fantastic film Another Earth. Very emotional film, perfectly matched music. It was hard to break away from the viewer. Indeed, the theme of which is shown in the film, reincarnation, yet little is disclosed. Therefore, only a good director and actors, even when the budget belt can create something beautiful, the food for the brain, which happened to this movie I also want to pay attention to the little actress who plays Indian girl - she is beautiful, and her eyes ... P.S. I thought that the man in the elevator (cowboy) with which the main character is found at the end of the tape wants not prevent disclosure mysteries of reincarnation protagonist, his words to me pushed this idea, maybe this is so ... P.S. Sorry for my English. This is my first review.
