The movie “Arrival” was released on Nov.11, providing a futuristic reality with aliens and spacecrafts.
This movie is based on Ted Chiang’s 1998 short story “Story of Your Life”
The director of the film “Arrival” is Denis Villeneuve who also produced the famous movie “Prisoners” and “Sicario” and the film is written by Eric Heisserer.
The cast included Amy Adams as Dr. Louise Banks, Forest Whitaker as Colonel Webber, Jeremy Renner as Ian Donnelly, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Agent Halpern.
At the beginning of the movie, it shows Louise’s personal life. Her daughter Hannah, who also has a considerable part in the movie. The relationship between Louise and Hannah feels to me as a very loving and deep relationship.
A spaceship touches down across the world. The American government
puts together an elite team by gathering soldiers and two professional linguist and theoretical physicist to reveal the reason why they are here.
General Colonel wants to meet Dr. Louise to communicate with the mysterious visitors, so she agrees and follows him.
Language expert Louise and theoretical physicist Ian, work together to find a way to communicate with the strangers.
The more they approach the aliens, the harder and more confusing it gets to discover their purpose on earth.
After they try to reveal the aliens’ language, the aliens start to communicate with the humans. They then show the purpose of why they came to earth.
While Louise is analyzing the aliens, she overworks herself to the point of hallucination.
Their language is simple yet difficult to understand, which makes me curious to know more about it, causing me to pay more attention to the movie. Furthermore, when the recruited team goes into the spaceship, the condition is changed to a gravity-free environment.
Through this film, the audience will perceive the movie to be real. The conclusion is shocking and unlikely to be predicted. This is not only about the science, but also about the drama and philosophical approaches of humanity.
Denis Villeneuve directs this science-fiction suspense film about Earth’s response to a possible alien invasion on humanity.
This movie was fantastic even though the conclusion was difficult for me to understand. Villeneuve’s idea of this movie is totally inspirational, perplexing and genius
