Trivia

All of the children mentioned have names combining famous scientists names including the leads Isaac (Zak) Newton Cole Midgely (Isaac Newton & Kenneth Cole), Ncola Tesla Hertz (Nikola Tesla & Heinrich Hertz), and Marie Currie Fortune. See more »

Goofs

One of three matches selected by Ministry of Partnership, Helen Malzin, is from Germany. The profile information on the computer screen showed the GDR, the country abbreviation for German Democratic Republic, which is informally known as East Germany.

The proper abbreviation would read as FRG, Federal Republic of Germany. See more »

Quotes

Zak: If I'm right, it means that whatever gave us our minute wasn't love, it was fate. It means im just here to serve a purpose for you. It means everything is already decided. There's no freedom, no responsibility, and knowledge absolutely does not determine destiny.
Marie: Does it matter?

Half decent concept for a low budget Brit flick.
26 May 2014 | by dolphinskiSee all my reviews

Watched purely on the strength of the other 3 reviews. Maybe they were fan boys but this was like watching a low budget British TV movie that had been commissioned by BBC Three to a fresh out of film school director with a decent idea. Ignore the comparisons with Eternal Sunshine, Primer and Waking Life, it's a very, very long way from any of them.

Some nice ideas but ultimately a muddled storyline, especially toward the end. Acting was decent for a low budget British movie but I don't think anyone will look back in years to come and think that this was to the director what Pi was to Aronofsky or Following was to Nolan.
