Storyline

Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

Trivia

The scene where Adam first puts on the weights and flips upside down is actually shot in a room that is suspended in a big giant wheel. The room itself, and everything inside it, moves 360 degrees. The camera moves with the room, so you can't tell if the room is moving, but you can see him flipping upside down. See more »

Goofs

When Adam steps into the x-ray scanner on his first visit into the TransWorld building. The x-ray is that of a woman as evidenced by the structure of the pelvis and other observable differences in bone structure and soft tissue that should have caused shape and density changes if the x-ray was that of a male.

Quotes

[first lines]
Adam: The universe, so full of wonders. I could spend hours and hours looking up at the sky. So many stars, so many mysteries. And there's one very special star that makes me think of one very special person. Now let me tell you my story.

Beautiful fairy-tale
13 September 2012 | by jcoludarSee all my reviews

The film's setting is magnificently beautiful, there are a lot of stunning ideas and images and the main story is good enough to make the two-planet world look real. The one and the only one flaw of the film is that it pretends to be a sci-fi film rather than a fairy-tale in an unusual setting. If you judge it as a sci-fi you will find a lot of "how could it be" things that tear the imaginary world apart. The actors are great and it is fun to see Spall as a protagonist friend rather than foe. Both Sturges and Dunst are wonderful. So if you want to watch a sci-fi film you better avoid "Upside Down". This is a love story set in the fantasy world. No more, but no less.
