Goofs

As a scientist, Ian should have known that he invalidated Salomina's test by both being the tester and knowing the "correct" answers: his eye movement, body language, etc. could have provided clues to Salomina which images to choose. To be valid, the test should have been done "double-blind" with the tester not knowing the correct answers; ideally this would have been by Priya who had both Salomina's trust and no prior knowledge of Sofi.

Quotes

[first lines]
Ian: Every living person on this planet has their own unique pair eyes. Each their own universe. My name is Doctor Ian Gray. I'm a father, and husband, and I'm a scientist. When I was a child, I realized that the camera was designed exactly like the human eye, taking in light through a lens, forming it into images. I began taking as many pictures of eyes as I possibly could. I'd like to tell you the story of the eyes that changed my world.

Great movie
25 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"I Origins" (2014) is a superb drama with sci-fi elements, that looks closer to reality then fiction from recent sci-fi movies. Acting was very solid, direction, script were superb as well as the music - great stuff. This picture grabbed me from first moments till the very last end - i couldn't take my eyes from screen and was captivated in the story. At running time 1 h 48 min it never drags and is superbly paced.

Overall, "I Origins" touches great themes, approaches them with more sciences rather then fiction and does a great job of keeping you glued to the screen during the process - what else can you ask from a motion picture. Great movie.
