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

Did You Know?


Gabor Stern: Jupiter has at least 67 known moons The largest four are called Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. These four moons are called the Galilean satellites because they were first seen in 1610 by the astronomer Galileo Galilei. One moon is presumed to have a saltwater ocean under its icy surface. This could be a cradle of new life forms.

A "noir" movie
19 April 2019 | by AliensReservoirSee all my reviews

My review is not political nor about propaganda as i saw some, I don't care about those I just wanted to see a movie, and Jupiter's Moon is a movie, not a documentary!

So, the story was well written and took a direction I did not liked, but is for that a bad movie? No! it's a very good movie and the story hooked me up to the end.

Acting: A very good surprise, Those are real actors, all of them! Acting was great in all sense and all way. Hungary has GREAT actors, period.

It's "noir", i am not a fan of noir movies, and did not expect this movie get on this side, but overall it was a nice noir movie.

In my opinion It's a 6/10 star movie, but like I said above the acting was very good so an easy 8/10 for the actors, they deserve it ;)
