If you like sci fi I recommend this film, not just because of the space setting but the subtle insights we get from the characters into life and its meaning. The actors actually portrayed their characters well and for this reason I felt more commected with the film. I havent sene a film this original for a long time. I went to see this as part of the film festival in Auckland and it was everything I expected and more. There was a lot of breathholding, it was shocking and emotional and the scenes were shot really well. The way the story is told and broken into sections is exactly one of my favourite components that is found in sci fi genre films. I liked the way the way the story is cut to make up lots of little stories to tell the tale over a period of time a sit cover sso many difgeremt themes of human nature and throughout theres still this all together one terrifying ongoing theme of doom.
The film seemed so original and inspired and I loved the exploration of beliefs, faith, sexuality and human psyche that was part of this film. The character development had me emotionally invested from the beginning and the film was enthralling start to finish with even some mild humour at times. Mostly though it was pretty unique and certainly very entertaining, there were some sad heart wrnwching moments but also uplifting ones and some light humour at times too, I liked how the film could touch on all these emotions.
