Storyline

A young immigrant is shot down while illegally crossing the border. Terrified and in shock, wounded Aryan can now mysteriously levitate at will. Thrown into a refugee camp, he is smuggled out by Dr Stern, intent on exploiting his extraordinary secret. Pursued by enraged camp director Laszlo, the fugitives remain on the move in search of safety and money. Inspired by Aryan's amazing powers, Stern takes a leap of faith in a world where miracles are trafficked for small change. Written by Viktória Petrányi

The sky above Budapest
14 June 2018 | by ilozzoliSee all my reviews

Do you need a miracle to try to become a better person? Or maybe more? And can you actually be a better person, if you try to? You will not necessarily get a conclusive answer to these questions, but what you definitely get if you watch Jupiter's moon, is a relatively entertaining story wrapped into a migrant-sci-fi coating, wonderful camera work, really good action scenes, and some food for thought. Some of the scenes -- both inside and outside ones -- are excellent, acting is also OK. A surprisingly good movie, although you probably need to be in the right mood to really enjoy it.
