Young Lukas, highly devoted to his work as a neuroinformatics scientist, becomes involved in an unusual international experiment. By means of neural transfer, he sets out on a journey into the mind of an unknown woman in a coma. With the help of Aurora, Lukas’s private name for his anonymous host, he immerses himself into a world which brings him new experiences and emotions. At the same time, however, these “excursions” begin to fundamentally influence and damage his real life. Is it possible to live in two worlds at the same time? After her provocative debut The Collectress (2008), talented young Lithuanian director Kristina Buožytė returns to the screen with a visually stunning sci-fi romance in an investigation of human desire. —Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

"Vanishing waves sigue la senda de la negligencia científica, pero ante todo, la humana, una que va despertando su lado egoísta y provechosa. Lukas pasa de pensar científicamente a pensar como persona en sí, sacando ventaja de un experimento que mengua sus necesidades humanas, aquellas que no logra solucionar en su propia alcoba...la frustración sexual..." http://bit.ly/10Pot87
really sad, when it was invested so much time to make logical movie with logical ideas of neural transfers, but it seems like during writing the screenplay they had forgotten about characters and dialogs, which i think is quite important to make a really good movie. now it has absolutely nothing to say for the audience
I hope this movie will start a new era of Lithuania cinematography. Beautiful, spiritual, touchable and artistic, quite good job made by extremely law buget. Every scenes which you see in this movie, was shooted in Lithuania landscape. So if you have happy feeling that never get shance taste coma, come to near Baltic sea.
