Adam lived in an extraordinary world, where humans were divided into two classes, each with their gravity opposing another. the two worlds were forbidden to interact, following a strict law that divided the less privileged from the privileged. but he fell in love with Eden, a girl from the opposite world, where they shared laughter and romance until her accident. with the intention of spending the rest of their life together, Adam had to fight science as well as the law just to be with her.
with a theory so complicated, the film managed to remain a simple and heartwarming romance. our thoughts were challenged with the odd introduction of such worlds, which at the same time was so intriguing. it was disturbing how the people were divided, where the less privileged lived in a darker world, while the privileged lived in a brighter world. the contrast perhaps was what made the film's visual furthermore overwhelming.
