Arrival: Minimalism and great atmosphere
Facing the arrival of 12 alien ships to different parts of the world, the American army claims the linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams), so that she can understand their language and discover why they have arrived on Earth and if they pose a threat. During her foray into the military camp and her various contacts with the aliens, Banks will have as main companion the scientist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Reener); also during his stay, Banks suffers different flashbacks in which he recalls harsh moments with his deceased daughter. However, while the US military is patient with the ship in its territory, China and Russia are in very close positions to attack the ships that are in their countries, at the risk of a possible counteroffensive by the aliens to with the planet.
With this movie, Villeneuve takes his first contact with science fiction before the great challenge that is in filming: the sequel to Blade Runner. In the first half of the film, we can say that he has done it sublime, photography and sound effects during the first incursion to the alien ship, the Canadian director takes us to a stage of tension and intrigue. A disturbing staging with Kubrick echoes that becomes risky due to its temporal phenomena reminiscent of the end of Interstellar, which may cause many viewers not to find a logical solution at the end of the film. This film is strange, poetic and incites to the reflection, a tape of little action, minimalist and with great atmosphere.
