I bought this film as a family film night possibility, thinking it would be similar to "Contagion" which we and our teenagers enjoyed. However, this odd and somewhat surreal film is very different. We were surprised, having expected something very different, but all thought it was rather wonderful. If you are expecting the traditional storyline, scientist races to save the world from disaster, which is what we thought we were going to watch, then this might take some getting used to, but we were captivated. I imagine it was based on a short story and, if so, would love to read more by the same author.
