  • This is a series of photos taken by Lyle Owerko depicting a man falling from the World Trade Center after it was attacked on 9/11, itself a reference to Richard Drew's photo The Falling Man). The images are shown in reverse order, implying that the man is falling upwards back into the tower, thus symbolizing Oskar's desire to reverse time and save his father. The same images make up the last 15 pages of Jonathan Safran Foer's novel, upon which this film is based. Edit
