What I find hardest to believe about this film is that anyone takes it seriously enough to give it more than 3 stars. The concept and dialog are philosophical nonsense from the start. It's not science fiction, as there is no science therein. It is imaginative fantasy in the heaviest sense of the term, but in truth isn't all that imaginative.
The acting is dire, the directing non-existent, the sets not really sets. It's not an art film as there's nothing artful about it. The philosophy is stuff pulled out of random self-help books mixed with a whole slew of "wow, someone smoked a lot of weed while writing this".
As speculative fiction-- which is the best it could have hoped for-- it's as speculative as stating we're all billiard balls in a universal game of snooker. Throw whatever random, mundane concepts one can put together, present it in a form of two people talking all. the. way. through. the. film.... and we have the climax and culmination of this "story". I find it difficult to believe this mundane attempt at film making has an average of 6 stars on IMDB, or that anyone would have the lack of cinematic integrity to actually give it 10 stars in a review. This is philosophical, zero-evidence "what-iffing"... and not much more.
The best I can say for it is that it does make some basic points. Happiness comes from helping others. Love is just the best thing ever, even when it's awful. One can try to do good and still miss the mark. Welcome to Life 101. Despite all its flaws it does manage to hold attention right to the yawner end... that is, if someone doesn't exercise the better part of sensibility and turn it off before then. Trust this: if you're not impressed by the first third, save your time on the rest. But if random, half-baked philosophical wandering is your bag..
