Trivia

The huge billboard for rent on the Okhla market has a 737634548 phone number on it, which adds up to 47, and 4+7, again, leads to 11. This is the billboard Ian eventually rents. See more »

Goofs

Karen says the results from Salomina's test lie "within standard margin". However, one can not calculate the unbiased sample variance of one-sample sets and, hence, you can not know whether a result from a single test lies within any kind of confidence intervals or margins. In fact, the empirical variance of one-sample-sets is a sort of running gag among statisticians. Researchers with even the slightest background in statistics, let alone the internationally-known empirical scientists, would never say such a thing nor would they abandon such a promising project based on only one interview.

Quotes

[first lines]
Ian: Every living person on this planet has their own unique pair eyes. Each their own universe. My name is Doctor Ian Gray. I'm a father, and husband, and I'm a scientist. When I was a child, I realized that the camera was designed exactly like the human eye, taking in light through a lens, forming it into images. I began taking as many pictures of eyes as I possibly could. I'd like to tell you the story of the eyes that changed my world.

Love story and science vs. religion
6 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Love story and science vs. religion. Result: meh

The first part of the movie is the love story between a scientist and a woman. Where does it all lead to, you ask yourself? The answer is in the second part, which goes full retard and reveals what the director/writer was aiming for: Trying to "prove" spirituality/religion by means of science. If you take anything in this movie seriously, you've been spiritually brainwashed and polluted by religion.

Good acting, good atmosphere. Very slow paced (if you've seen the director's previous movie, Another Earth, you should know what to expect). Nothing amazing.

4.5/10 Meh
