Trivia

When Helena is learning to use chopsticks with Alex, the outdoor cafe they are at is an homage to the scene in Blade Runner, when Deckard(Ford) is having noodles. Raining, outside cafe, night, a lot of functional neon as lighting. The director even threw in a clear umbrella, reminiscent of those used in Blase Runner. See more »

Goofs

When Álex is leaving the ship after they first met Helena walks up to him, her hair clearly falling over her shoulder. As Álex is talking to Helena the shots go back-and-forth between them and, without any movement at all (Helena's standing very still at this point) her hair suddenly disappears from her shoulder.

User Reviews

 
Charming SF with good twists and low-key direction.
1 October 2017 | by chrisfowlerSee all my reviews

The beautiful Clara Lago is on her way from a ruined Earth to Celeste, and awakes in her space- pod to find someone docking - the first living person she'll meet apart from her deceased parents. But the handsome engineer who visits to fix her oxygen is offhand, even though he kisses her... You can see the first of the twists coming (it's in the trailer) but some of the others are nicely handled. This low-key futuristic Spanish-made adventure has some good ideas, a pleasing score and cool visuals, but the director could have made more of the story's tragic implications.
