An emotional, somewhat depressing take at a romantic film set in a world much like our own, but facing an unexplainable, unstoppable epidemic of sense-disabling condition. Thanks to Max Richter's beautiful music, it's easier to overlook the lack of character development, the outrageously bad writing (there are moment when the lines are just put into the actor's mouths). Spoiler alert: there is no happy end.
Everyone I share this with believes it to be too sad. I just feel like they don't understand themselves and what it means to be human. I thought that Mackenzie captured the essence of living. There were many moments in the film that I had a profound sense of self and at times, it felt as though the cogs, inner workings of my own mind were being mapped out right before me.
