Like Contact with up to date science
Verified purchase
I love it when a film treats its viewer with intelligence, all the trivialities are skipped over and the film concentrates on the core of its message. Acting is very good, music is delicious and cinematography perfect. It reminded me of the film Contact with Jodie Foster, but the science is more up to date. I was surprised with the ending, I didn't think they would make that leap... Truly great film, I wish more films like these were made!

Astronomy, Geology, Philosophy and ...

Love rears its head again, this time in a tender little film about two ships bumping in the night. One has hit an iceberg and is sinking fast, but you wouldn't know it until she tips up and disappears beneath the waves, only to reappear in other kinds of waves, light years beyond the stars.
Very romantic and very probably true. We just don't know it yet. A good film with some tender tearful moments, even for a big Viking like me, and even I keep a bowl of precious stones nearby, because we are all made of star stuff at the end of the day.

Contemplative Sci-Fi for a romantic night in.
Verified purchase
If you can empathise with the two main actors....you`ll stay till the end. A film to share with a partner, or for one of those nights when you need to wind down, then lie back, and ponder. Or better still, when it ends,......go outside.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer,
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer

Very slow anti-science mumbo jumbo
Verified purchase
Like so many films on the same subject, this starts by adopting the framework of science to establish some credibility, then rips the characters up, denounces their logic and promises that magic is the answer. It was no doubt written by someone profoundly religious.

P.S. This film epic fails the Bechdel Test: The female characters don't even meet each other.

A real gem.
Verified purchase
This is a beautiful movie, with excellent performances by the lead actors. I was looking for watchable sci-fi but found a real gem, with believable characters, pathos, real depth of feeling, love, a delicate touch of romance, mystery ... and science too. There is a tragic story-line, that touched me personally very deeply, but ultimately it is positive without being triumphalist. Science wins out, but there is room for spirituality too. The last couple of minutes were a touch fanciful, but I can forgive that. I was left wondering who Clara really was, which adds to the appeal of the movie and leaves you wanting more.

A really lovely film
Verified purchase
A wonderful story about the meaning and nature of life. It is both very sad and very uplifting at the same time. I questioned who was Clara really? She was certainly a special being, but was the story insinuating that we are all special if we just allow ourselves to accept that there is something more to life than that which our senses tell us.
Miracles are devoid of evidence, but they can and do happen. To expand our spiritual consciousness perhaps we just need to let go of the human need to seek proof and accept that the universe is an inexplicable and miraculous place to spend some time.

Beautiful Story
Verified purchase
Quantum Entanglement is definitely one fascinating area of research ripe for exploration and discovery.

It is unfortunate that some who appear to lack imagination arrive at the "magic" conclusion when the story itself makes no definitive statement on whether the main discovery was pure chance, or due to a deeper, 'magical' connection to the wider universe. The suggestion is made and the door left wide open for anyone to step through, but the writers, smartly, still leave it to the viewer to arrive at a conclusion either way. Unfortunately some are immediately triggered by the first hint of anything that goes beyond what they think they know and arrive at unwarranted, and incorrect conclusions about this wonderful film.

The interesting thing is that quantum theory itself effectively prevents us from assigning definitive values to any given reality always leaving at least one element of it beyond our reach, if it is there to be reached at all, that is.

And in the face of all that, some people still are audacious enough to think that they can arrive at definitive conclusions about what is 'magic' and what is not.

Predictable plot married to nonsensical science
Verified purchase
I had high hopes for this given the good star rating, but the plot proved to be predicable and the ending even worse.

At it's heart, it's basically about science versus creationism. Along the way, we're presented with two core characters that wend a rather predictable path which provides little intrigue and reason to keep watching.
Nevertheless, I did see it through to the end and I wish I'd bailed out when I thought about doing so.

Rather than come to a conclusion that science or creationism is right it concludes with an awful fudge.

This is achieved by the use of an appalling plot device based on the use of some miraculous scientific breakthrough that was never signposted anywhere prior to this in the film. Namely, the use of quantum entanglement for communication.

While the director shares his name with an eminent UK physicist, he is clearly happy to ignore the scientific consensus that such communication is impossible. Now, I'm more than happy to suspend disbelief if required (say, in the way Avatar does), but the way this story is told, you are never invited to do so and all you are left thinking is 'that was a load of nonsense'.

Ho hum. That's an hour and 45 minutes I'll never get back.
