When it travels at the speed of light the power of the sun ray can play tricks with the eyes and brain and then we can live a story that may be real or not real. It's the game the speed of light is playing.

Did You Know?


"Speed of Light" has four different endings. The producers all agree to keep only the shortest one. The director was furious. The first release on DVD has only the short ending. It was originally designed so that at the end of the movie there would be an abrupt black space for one minute then one by one there would be one ending after another separated by one minute of black space. The HD release (scheduled for 2011-12) will feature the option to view all the different endings. See more »

It deals with light reflected through our subconscious.
22 January 2009 | by jar89See all my reviews

I'm not exactly sure what it was all about.

It's different from most films and the actors are so great.

The concept is amazing. It deals with light reflected through our subconscious.

What we see may not be what is actually happening. A lot of things are happening during an entire night.

There is a demented guy that has lived on a deserted island for too long. He lives in a warehouse.

He meets two young teens and held them at gun point. The story is sort of clear but I'm not sure I can say what it is.

Can anyone explain it to me?

I love the film because of the acting, the music and the settings. I have to say that the scene on the floor is really hot!
