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.

Incredibly Moving
20 December 2014 | by dnlldncnSee all my reviews

As I looked up the movie description I was skeptical of how the movie would play out. Upon watching the film in its entirety; this film is spectacular, intriguing, beautiful and moving spiritually. I highly recommend this film. The points touched on in the film lead to such wonder, such possibility. Questions I have asked myself, feelings, and the atom connections. There are clearly so many unanswered questions and as humans we've barely scratched the surface. It may take many more years to truly reveal the origins or maybe the origins are never truly meant to be understood. Regardless, this film will leave you in wonderment and bewildered.
