Quotes

Tess: When you remember something, you remember the memory. You remember the last time you remembered it, not the source, so it's always getting fuzzier, like a photocopy of a photocopy.

A movie about processing grief
11 October 2017 | by saodu13See all my reviews

The sci-fi context is irrelevant in this film. It's just an excuse to get people to talk, and see how they each process grief. How everyone deal with their own sadness and sorrow, and how they confront or do not confront them.

There is no plot, or big reveal, or secret that we uncover at the end. This is purely about human sentiment. It's as real as it gets. Simple, and painful.

I'm not sure if I was bored or fascinated during my viewing. The movie, if we pay attention to it and not to our phone, can strike a chord. I'd guess especially if you ever had to deal with life shattering grief at some point in your life.
