Trivia

At the beginning of the film, after a man empties out the contents of the backpack and doesn't find anything valuable and leaves it, a homeless looking young girl approaches it and begins to pick up the contents. There are several letters and one of the letters she picks up has on the envelope written "mac guffin", this is a reference to a plot device popularly used in films known as a MacGuffin in which an object serves as the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation- just like the backpack in this film.

One project that must be seen !
9 September 2015 | by vivanova-258-733787See all my reviews

Amazing project ! This must be a collaboration of future ! Congrats to all crews.Great idea and great work you have done.It was a pleasure to watch it. I can imagine how hard is to coordinate a job like this with so many crews,but the results are just great ! And for the audience is very interesting i think to find so many different cultures in one project.Keep realizing a good ideas like this,so the people could find more cool movies like 'the owner'. This movie absolutely deserve guinness nomination and it is one of the kind ! There aren't a lot of projects with multiple directors specially with so many ,and thats give a lot of styles and make it interesting and unique.
