Adam and Eden fell in love as teens despite the fact that they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years after a forced separation, Adam sets out on a dangerous quest to reconnect with his love.
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!Written by
One set featured an upside chandelier. "We built three quarters of a chandelier, not the very top, but everything else, (and there) was a steel rod up the center holding it down," says Production Designer Alex McDowell. "We had to wire up the crystals so that they looked like they were hanging." See more »
When Adam is Up-side his hair should be falling upward toward Down Under, like that of anyone being held upside down.
(before he goes up-side he sprays his hair with hairspray to keep it from falling up.) See more »
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.

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 :)
