Trivia

'Aningaaq' has screened at various festivals alongside Gravity (2013) and it'll be included among the bonus features when the film hits Blu-ray and DVD. See more »

Goofs

We should not be able to hear both sides of the conversation at the same time as the radio is simplex, ie when the mic is pushed, the other party should not be heard. An example is when Aningaaq is howling like the dogs, we should not be able to hear Astro Stone at the same time. See more »

Crazy Credits

The Warner Bros. shield is black over a white background, as apposed to 'Gravity', which was the other way around. See more »

Semi-Gravity. ♦ 74%
21 November 2013 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

Probably you will cry your eyes out after watching.

Gravity was one hell of a movie and this short spin-off just aggravates the feeling. When Dr. Ryan Stone finds solace in the conversation, she recollects the tiny joys of life through a dog's woof, a child's cry, a cute lullaby and eventually getting lost in translation. We try to interpret many things when she patches to someone named Aningaaq and it is through this film by Jonas Cuaron we get into the other side of the 90 minute masterpiece.

Although, it is an extended play to the original film and so to speak, I enjoyed the play, it isn't THAT GREAT idiosyncratically. And so expecting a double Oscar is some expectation. Still, Aningaaq is a fine film worth a watch.

BOTTOM LINE: Not in line with the mastery of Gravity but has got tenderness. Recommended only after you watch Gravity.
