ORIGIN is an indie thriller that hails from Sweden. The story that plays out is very familiar but it's handled in a low key and realistic way here that makes it an interesting watch at times, although overall boredom wins out over interest. The film's science fiction elements are engaging but they're almost totally hidden from sight as the story progresses. The story is about a dying scientist who tries a new miracle cure that has the expected unexpected side effects. There's lots of mood and slow-burning mystery and the acting is okay, but aside from the climax there's no real drama. This is an example of a film which is too subtle for its own good.
