It is typical of me, a common lame-brained normal person with an active interest in science and physics but no real mastery of it, to savor these sorts of theoretical science type movies, especially when they experiment with quantum physics.
"Quantum physics" is to me, the common lame-brained normal etc, pure magic. I attempted a while ago to learn just some of the basics and it completely overwhelmed me and erased what ever little bit of it I did understand. It is demonic spooky magic.
This movie thankfully does not go very dense into the quantum, much in the way "Primer" went very dense into the mechanical engineering, and relies heavily on dumbing down the concepts for the audience a bit.
Despite that, while I was able to get ahold of and gain a clear understanding of most, if not all of the concepts dealt with in the film, when they all come together as a whole, I was just left confused.
The film itself made me hesitant to approach, as it was very clearly low budget. I've enjoyed many low budget movies, but typically since the vast majority of movies are done in 24 frames per second, and the vast majority of live television (including news, reality TV, talk shows) are done in 30 fps, making them look just slightly "faster" than movies.
this film seemed to be shot in some uneven mix of 30 fps and something a bit faster, giving it a look somewhere between a talk show and a soap opera. Despite this, the acting was amazingly decent all throughout and the concepts kept my interest long enough to actually enjoy much of the movie. There are some encounters with cliché storytelling, such as the "Off-beat science guy" who is very nearly thrown out by the protagonist due to a lie, placing the entire concept of the film at risk.
Other reviews detail probably in greater detail and understanding what they attempted many times to explain using the term "membranes". The impression I got was something reminiscent of multiple universes, but somehow different, especially later on in the film when they make a startling slight revelation which changes the way they should approach it.
Up to the climax, I had a firm grasp of what was happening. When the business with the protagonist and the professor unfolded, I had a shaky grasp of what was happening. When it got to the "epilogue" portion, I completely lost it.
