The script, which Claire Denis wrote with her longtime collaborator, screenwriter Jean-Pol Fargeau, was first written in French. It was rumored English novelist Zadie Smith worked on the English draft, but Denis didn't see eye to eye with her and ultimately rejected it, stating that, "My producer introduced me to her. I thought it would be great to work with her, but we don't have the same philosophy of life. She disliked my casting for the lead and she wanted to change the story. So I asked her, 'Tell me the story you want.' It was so different, it was so unsexy for me. Nothing against her, but she wanted the people of the ship to - she wanted them to return to Earth. 'Going home,' she kept telling me. I said, 'What the fuck do you mean, going home? There is no one alive there!' She also wanted to retitle the film to 'A New Life'. I really tried, honestly tried. But sometimes people, they have different perceptions of the world. I've read her books - and I know why: We are on the same planet, but not living the same life, for sure. So there was not even a draft." See more »

Characters so emotionally dead it should have been a zombie movie
Typical European film made for critics not those looking for something to enjoy. Why are so many European films so emotionally dead? The sex here is dead as well if not twisted. No reason to see this if you are fan of sci-fi. The sci-fi elements are just a way to show the characters' alienation from reality.
