Trivia

Musician Stuart Staples composed much of the score before filming began. When they shot the F**kbox scene, Juliette Binoche acted with the music playing in the background to match her body movements. See more »

Goofs

The characters go spacewalking in Russian style spacesuits, which have fabric hoods. The hoods stay soft and un-inflated, even during spacewalks in a vacuum. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Monte: [narrating] At 99% the speed of light, the entire sky converged before our eyes. This sensation, moving backwards even though we're moving forwards, getting further from what's getting nearer. Sometimes I just can't stand it.

Characters so emotionally dead it should have been a zombie movie
7 May 2019 | by garyg-94974See all my reviews

Typical European film made for critics not those looking for something to enjoy. Why are so many European films so emotionally dead? The sex here is dead as well if not twisted. No reason to see this if you are fan of sci-fi. The sci-fi elements are just a way to show the characters' alienation from reality.
