I used to think this was the beginning of your story. Memory is a strange thing. It doesn't work like I thought it did. We are so bound by time, by its order.

Excellent, intelligent, just a terrific film.
This is a very, very well made film, which is thought provoking, measured, engaging, and thoroughly well made.
There is nothing brash, or heavy handed about it, the story is superbly told, with well grounded characters. The story is of course sci fi, and hugely creative, but it's never silly, it is incredibly intelligent.
Awesome special effects, I loved the design of the alien race, and their language, quite incredible.
A story of hope, which I loved. 9/10
