An amazing love story and brilliant effects.
Verified purchase
Watched this on Prime after scrolling.
It's a great idea and is actually an anime called Patema Inverted, roughly based on the same idea of gravity love story etc, which I loved as well.
I personally love the story and the graphics are amazing. People lower the score because I read some reviews saying its not factual with the effects of gravity or the 3 laws etc, but they obviously lack imagination and a brain if they lower the rating because of that. Every fantasy or Scifi film is not factual. So why would this be any different? With two worlds side by side and humans on both with different gravity centres, yep that sounds real, right? 😂
You need to take it with a pinch of salt and you will see an amazing love story.
Two worlds separated by conflicting gravity and the couple on opposite sides fighting to be together.

A play at duality
Verified purchase
What a striking amazing fun film
The storyline essentially gels the futuristic conceptualised world in this extraordinary film.
The concept of having another duplicate world above your own seems magical and beyond viable; yet that's precisely what the exraordinary graphics haas achieved. Its brilliant, makes your tummy lurch I bet
Great film, ignore the sceptics downplaying the romantic aspects, because there needs to be a storyline in order to work the magic of graphics and interplay the duality of hierarchical coexistence. You will see what I mean once you watch the film :)

Awesome graphics
Verified purchase
Wow - it's worth 5 stars for the graphics alone - the whole two worlds concept, whilst not entirely original, is absolutely spellbinding in this film. The 'Berlin Wall' and Romeo and Juliet parallells may seem a good idea but I actually found them to be an annoying distraction and felt that the duo world visuals could have been more thoroughly investigated throughout the whole film i.e more 'above and below' scenery. Thought it was incredible in parts and incredibly dull in others - hence the deduction of one star. Well worth a watch though.

This film left me baffled.
Verified purchase
This was far to airy fairy and mushy for me. it made no sense and i found it super boring. It was essentially just like a mills and boon book but without the sex. i know that most sci fi films aren't based on truth and couldn't actually happen but you normally get caught in the story and are able to pretend that it could happen but this film was just ludicrous. There is no story other than these people love eachother but it's forbidden..... The fact that it was based on the laws of gravity means that it kept pointing out that this is a story that was so unbelievable. There's no consistency in this film and i don't feel like anything gets explained or explored.

Great idea
Verified purchase
I like th e idea of the film and it has been filmed very well however the music is far to distracting. It's too loud in comparison to the film sound. The other problem I had with it could have had more tension, I felt it just wanted to get on with the story. It kind of left me feeling I must have slipped some part of the film. Just watching the film makes me feel for these characters having the whole time to look up. I know it is just a film but even so.
It's enjoyable but not perfect. I would recommend it to someone who likes this kind of films.

Honestly, this is awful!!
Verified purchase
Oh my god. I'm only giving this one star because I can't leave minus ratings. This piece of utter tripe had more plot holes than Swiss cheese, and quite possibly the worst final scene in any film I've watched. If it weren't for the fact that it had me in fits of (unintentional) laughter, I would've turned it off after the first five minutes. Although I only paid .99p to rent this, I really wish I could have my money back. Really.

Really good...
Verified purchase
Its a nice romance but the real star is the relatively novel and very interesting alternate fantasy world / reality that the romance is set in. Its been a long time since I have seen something so different. Brilliant ideas and relatively good special effects. If you are into the fantasy world / alternate reality sort of thing, this is a really good film and definitely worth a watch.

Love story\Science fiction
Verified purchase
The physics does not work and some parts are just plain stupid. But it's science fiction and the story is basically Romeo and Juliet but in the most literal form possible. Saying that it's a nice love story and as long as you go in with that frame of mind its quite enjoyable
