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

No one knows who preformed the "Falling Down" song in the end credits. The song details do not appear on the end credits. It is a complete mystery that no one has been able to solve. See more »

Goofs

When Adam and Eden try to escape from the police for the second time, near the end of the movie, Adam is holding Eden on his shoulders jumping through the big blocks of stone. When a man fires and hits the wire that holds the stone where they're standing, they fall down and Eden grabs the chain with one hand, and Alan with the other one. Then she is forced to let Adam fall down, but doing it, the gravity of her planet should attract her and cause her to fall in the opposite direction of Adam. You can obviously notice that this doesn't happen: Adam falls and Eden is still holding herself to the chain to avoid falling down in the same direction of Adam. 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.

Excellent fantasy
19 August 2013 | by lex-cardenteySee all my reviews

I want to start by saying this movie is a romantic fantasy and it is a superb, beautifully crafted, incredible movie. This is the kind of movie that really uses this medium (cinema) to help us travel to imaginary and impossible places and situations.

People examining the physics in this movie are starting with the wrong foot, this movie is like a dream meant to be enjoyed. The images in this movie are like extraordinary postcards and will be hard to forget due to its beauty and detail.

The sets in this movie are beyond words and the acting is outstanding. The romantic couple is fantastic together.

I wish there were more movies with this kind of genuine and imaginative subjects.

Great movie, impossible not to recommend.
