A modern fairytale
1 March 2018 | by ladybug2535See all my reviews

I loved this movie--it had romance (and I'm not a fan of romances in general), mystery and some absolutely jaw-dropping bits. The aerial ballet is absulutely beautiful, as was the artist's presentation at the gallery. Wonderfully done--the movie was worth watching for those scenes alone!

As for the story itself--I truly do not understand how anyone could have been confused. In fact it pretty much telegraphs the fundamental premise very early on--it was hard to miss. I suppose if the viewer does miss the point then the varous scenes as they evolve could be confusing, but the very factors that create the mystery for the main character (the patterns) should easily lay out the "answer" to the audience. I don't want to give too much away, but to say that a key point brought up repeatedly is that of the dying star who's light "is reaching earth from 30 years in the past". Enough said about that. I will add, this is NOT a rehash of "Groundhog Day".

The music was appropriate and enticing, while the acting was good--the cinematography is some scenes was breathtaking. I do have a few quibbles with the script, but overall it was intriguing and involving--though I did guess the "twist" pretty early on. Apparently I'm in the minority--in that I didn't find the film confusing at all. Honestly I don't know how they could have made it clearer without simply giving the whole game away from the beginning--which would have made it an entirely different (and boring) film (if not a simple straight forward love story). The main characters were certainly presented well enough that I found myself wholly engaged in rooting for them as the story progressed--there was only one scene that felt out of character (a major if brief "temper tantrun" that felt entirely gratuitious and out of place to me), which is certainly a better score than many films rate. While not Oscar worthy, it absolutely deserves a better score than a 5.

PARENTS: Nothing inherently offensive that would force you to lock up the kiddies for the night before viewing, though there is mild gun violence. There IS a close call between fully packed passenger planes which some viewers may find disturbing. At no point is there anything particularly gory or horrifying--though there is the tension of potential life-threatening (and sanity breaking) danger and mystery. There isn't even any nudity or sex and I don't remember any swearing (though I can't swear to it--ha ha).
