Written and directed by Juan Diego Solanas in 2012, this Canadian-French romantic fantasy depicts a love-story in a twin-world with "dual gravity" of otherworldly planetary system of an unknown gallaxy.
You definitely need a willing suspension of disbelief to enjoy this futuristic fantasy because the film seems quite foolish from time to time.
However, it is a well-crafted entertainment piece with excellent visual effects.
I enjoyed it to the hilt.

Great concept and lovely visuals, but the story suffers from poor implementation.

What an excellent movie! I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you're like me, and into cute love stories, you will enjoy this as much as I did!

Original and entertaining, however you must ignore science!

A very unusual film, and the strangest premise for a sci-fi story, ever. There are a few properties of this bizarre world that just don't add up, but if you let yourself get into the story, they don't matter. This is what sci-fi is really about: what if. This film touches a lot of issues; friendship, romance, loyalties, class prejudices, and sheer determination. The story has quirks, and the cinematography is as unusual as the story itself. Not for everyone, but if you enjoy sci-fi, and could use a break from lasers and aliens, it's definitely worth seeing.

If you like this concept, go watch the anime "Patema Inverted"
It's sooo much better! (Visuals, acting, fully-fleshed out storyline, less plot holes, more believable relationships, etc!)

Interesting movie concept. This film is a love story set in a place where there are two worlds separated by a gravitation divide. Keeping track of which world you are on is the challenge- as things that appear to be upside down could be upside right. Visually stunning!

A very interesting premise, good acting, amazing visuals but overall a so so story. Nothing special here or worthwhile. Skip it.

A visually stunning film, but that's about the only redeeming quality of this movie. Mediocre acting and a contrived storyline with many, many plotholes. Had alot of potential but failed in the long-run.

A visual wonder with two charming leads in Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess as the two lovers forbidden to have any life with one another, as a result of their being from two worlds and class structures. I found this, while mystifying in it's depictions of two worlds, both upside down and right side up to also be a genuine story with real emotion. Something you wont find often in today's cinema.
