Trivia

For a brief moment in the opening credits only the letters I and O are shown in the movie title. This gives "IOII". In binary the number 1011 translates as eleven which is an important number throughout the film. See more »

Goofs

It is not correct to weight all of the Salomina's test answers equally. For example, her getting the answer for the favorite candy right should not have the same importance as her correctly recognizing her grandma's face. The test was not correctly designed. See more »

Quotes

[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.

Superly Awesome Drama !
27 December 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Yes, we do not fully understand how complex, chaotic or random nature is, but deep down in our heart we always feel that there is something which connects us to everything that has ever existed or exists. Just like the fact that we are all star dust coming from a singular event that happened billions of years ago. Still here we are questioning and reasoning every possible way we can to the very creator of the whole scheme.

I Origins gives you one of the best way possible to explain the interconnection of the complex yet simple world we live in and soul we carry. Acting and casting are perfect and so as direction and editing. At one point it gave me goosebumps, just by imagining a possibility that what if it is true ?!

A must watch.
