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!

Goofs

If both worlds are rotating on an axis, the cities, one above the other, would need to be at a pole to always align. Typically, planetary poles are extremely cold and nearly uninhabitable. And if the worlds don't rotate, this presents other problems, most notably with tides, weather patterns, etc. See more »

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.

User Reviews

 
and not a single yawn was given
28 August 2012 | by alexeyandrosovSee all my reviews

The story behind the movie is interesting, it was a pleasure watching. The special effects and imagery as a whole are astonishing, although at certain times "unfinished", "half-rendered". The actors fit well in the story, and it's needless to say they performed good.

Still, I was a bit disappointed when I discovered that at this time the movie is still on post-production and what I've seen was a not a final version. In U.S. the movie will start in December 2012, but producers decided to start returning money in Eastern Europe, falsely thinking that people here have lower standards for special effects and stuff.

Anyway, the idea is good, execution too, and after the movie i expected cookies to float up from the box :)
