Product Description

Businessman George Barber (Tom McCamus) is discovered dead, with his head cut open and his brain removed, and the police are clueless as to how it all happened. A series of flashbacks shows us scenes from George's life, but it soon becomes clear that George lived not one life but many, arrayed across a number of possible worlds, and in each of these lives he loved a woman named Joyce (Tilda Swinton). The police eventually find George's brain in the laboratory of scientist Dr Kleber (Gabriel Gascon), where it is being subjected to some unusual experiments ....

Format: DVD
Coming from an academic who works in physics and neuroscience this is one of my favorite movies of all time. The play that it was adapted from was written by a mathematician and the movie explores some very interesting philosophical questions about life and existence. It is not fast paced and the plot only really comes together towards the end so you will need to be patient or even watch it twice to understand how things fit. Visually the movie is amazingly beautiful and I highly recommend it.

It's quite hard to review 'Possible Worlds' as the story is so linear, and it's near on impossible to describe the film without giving the ending away.
The biggest problem with 'Possible Worlds' has to be with Director Robert Lepage. He takes an intriguing and clever idea, and then steadfastly refuses to develop it, and after dragging things out for an incredibly dull 80 minutes, we are then presented with an ending that most viewers would have figured out within the first 15 minutes of the film. Personally I would have much preferred a more ambiguous ending that kept the viewer guessing if George was switching between alternate worlds or not.
The quality of acting is equally as bad, Lepage manages to get some excruciatingly bad performances out of some very credible actors. The dialogue is incredibly stale and artificially stilted with long pauses, almost as if the actors are being forced to read their lines off cue cards. In the hands of a better director this could have been quite a clever little movie, but in its current state it's an incredibly dull and bland film.

i luckily took a chance and watched this at the ICA in london on its release (mainly because it was compared to david lynch!). i've since bought this dvd and its become one of my most watched movies ever. if you like dreamy, philosophical movies that raise more questions than are answered, then definitely take a chance with this sumptuous movie about the brain and imagination. if you happen to like action movies or normally structured films then give this a miss. photography and acting is first rate, my only slight complaint is that the dvd is a single layer dvd and in 4:3 ratio - i think it was 16:9 widescreen when i saw it in the cinema. i only wish there was more films like this.
