    Maybe I would’ve enjoyed this more had I ever read Murakami... or if I were smart. The ambiguity of the plot really threw me off, but the more I think about it, the more I like it.

    The camera work is beyond impeccable. The blocking, the composition, the colors. Performances are amazing too. Hope to rewatch it soon.

    No one’s too smart for love.

    Or maybe I’m just too stupid, but I definitely bought some of the film’s ideas. It was an interesting way of approaching the everlasting relationship between art and science.

    And I guess part of the reason it all clicks is due to the chemistry between Clara and Isaac (married in real life).

    Anyway, this is a nice indie sci-fi/romance worth the while :)

    Si tú me dices que es amor, para mí es amor.

    Que bonito ver un proyecto mexicano de tan buena calidad. Decisiones muy acertadas de dirección por parte de Beristain; diálogos y fotografía de calidad.

    Gidi y Giménez Cacho están perfectos.
