Two Leica cameras are used. First the Leica M Monochrom (digital) camera with a Summarit 75mm lens, a short telephoto lens. But as it is a rangefinder camera you will not be able to see the magnification of the lens through the finder, on the opposite, the finder has a slight widening effect. When we see the blinking light in the valley through the finder of the camera, there is a focusing effect that does not exist with a Leica M camera and the image we see is zoomed in, which is impossible (except from the rear LCD screen). We also miss the focusing area, so specific for this camera. Just after the moment Alex/Kate W. sees the blinking, she hands over the camera to Ben/Idris E. But in this next shot the camera suddenly changed into a Leica M4-P (film) camera. You can also see this because of the different camera strap. After they made love, Alex/Kate W. starts to take photo's of Ben/Idris E. with the Leica M4-P camera, which is not so strange, because after almost 3 weeks the battery of the digital Leica M will be exhausted already for a long time. But no matter what Leica M lens she uses (in this case I think it is a Voigtländer 25mm), it is not possible to make a sharp focused picture from this close distance. The smallest focusing distance with these lenses is 0,7 meters (or non-rangefinder coupled 0.5 meters). And then there is of course the problem with the medium format negatives, as mentioned above.

Rarely do I find myself so moved by a movie. So I was pleasantly surprised. This movie offered a lot for adults that enjoy great acting, amazing cinematography, and scripts that make us think about what it means to live, love, fear, and overcome the seemingly impossible. I found myself mesmerized by the chemistry between the two main characters and how they experienced different feelings while being present in the exact same circumstance. It's an incredibly compelling story. I don't think a love story of this kind has ever been made. As far as the bad reviews go, I'm convinced that most of the people writing bad reviews and giving low ratings, NEVER saw the movie and have an agenda. Do you remember how people reacted to the infamous interracial Cheerios commercial? Well the same thing is happening here. The truth is that the movie is excellent and should be nominated for Best Picture. I'd even see it again. The ending is one of the best I have seen.
