Trivia

Salomina started crying when the doors of the elevator opened. That shows how the mind is connected with the eyes and the reason why she is scared is because Sofi lost her life in an elevator. See more »

Goofs

Karen says the results from Salomina's test lie "within standard margin". However, one can not calculate the unbiased sample variance of one-sample sets and, hence, you can not know whether a result from a single test lies within any kind of confidence intervals or margins. In fact, the empirical variance of one-sample-sets is a sort of running gag among statisticians. Researchers with even the slightest background in statistics, let alone the internationally-known empirical scientists, would never say such a thing nor would they abandon such a promising project based on only one interview.

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.

Great movie
25 December 2014 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"I Origins" (2014) is a superb drama with sci-fi elements, that looks closer to reality then fiction from recent sci-fi movies. Acting was very solid, direction, script were superb as well as the music - great stuff. This picture grabbed me from first moments till the very last end - i couldn't take my eyes from screen and was captivated in the story. At running time 1 h 48 min it never drags and is superbly paced.

Overall, "I Origins" touches great themes, approaches them with more sciences rather then fiction and does a great job of keeping you glued to the screen during the process - what else can you ask from a motion picture. Great movie.
