Did You Know?


'Aningaaq' has screened at various festivals alongside Gravity (2013) and it'll be included among the bonus features when the film hits Blu-ray and DVD. See more »


We should not be able to hear both sides of the conversation at the same time as the radio is simplex, ie when the mic is pushed, the other party should not be heard. An example is when Aningaaq is howling like the dogs, we should not be able to hear Astro Stone at the same time. See more »

A nice little bonus.
27 January 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

After an exhilarating experience of Gravity, I always wanted more of it. Though my wish was half granted in the form of this 7 minute short.

This tells the story of Aningaaq, the man whom Dr. Stone talks to while being stranded in space after a space wreck.

Though it might not be as outstanding or sunning as the film, it certainly is a nice little bonus for those who enjoyed the film. It does not feature the awesome Jaw dropping space scenes, but does has a visually catchy blizzard atmosphere. Moreover, it offers a pleasant surprise, i.e. the parts of Aningaaq are subtitled. After listening to their conversation one might conclude that how deep human emotions are, where one's feelings can be understood even with a language barrier in place, and can be transferred as well.

Direction: Average.

Story/Screenplay: Nice.

Acting: There wasn't much of acting required. even so it was average.

Music: Good.

Overall a nice little enjoyable shot, for the movie lovers.
