Mike Cahill's odd independent film emphasizes mood over plot.

The image of another Earth in our sky is a powerful and alluring one, and this film is able to live up to that allure.

The concept behind Another Earth is undoubtedly intriguing: while looking up at the sky at a mirror image of planet Earth, a young girl crashed head on with a man and his family, killing his pregnant wife and child. I think a lot of people went into this movie thinking it was going to be anchored by science fiction, when it's quite the opposite: Another Earth is about it's incredibly flawed characters, and the relationship between the girl and the father who's life she destroyed. Thematically rich and posing some interesting questions, like what kind of advice would you give yourself if you could talk to a copy of you? And, what if you do have another life, do you make the same choices as you do now? The writing is definitely great here, and seeing the relationship between the two unfold is intriguing, and heartbreaking. I seldom wish that a film goes on longer than it does, but I think had the ending been extended and we saw these questions being answered for our lead character, it would have been a much more memorable film. It had the potential to be something great, but we got cut off at just the wrong moment in the end.

Shittiest movie Iv seen in my whole life worse than Tales of Tales. The entire movie is one really big climax but when you reach the end all of that excitement turns to Pure DISSAPOINTMENT. Storyline was interesting movie was not executed well. I Hate It.

Well acted and captivating, but different than I was expecting. It really needs a sequel. It made me like Brit Marling even more than I already do.

I am a superfan of nearly all of the kinds of scifi (with the only exception of catastrophic scifi), but I particularly like this kind of "soft" scifi movies, in which the premises are clearly typical of the genre, but the movie is not totally permeated by it. Given that, many who wrote a review here under said that Another Earth is too ambitious for what it portrais. I don't really see in which point it seems too ambitious, and then I totally disagree with them. It's a story that should make people reflect, and it does it, while enjoying a movie well written with some turns that doesn't seem plausible, but that are completely acceptable in the moment we accept that a parallel world can exist.

Pretty dull but a great ending scene!

This independent science fiction drama has a lot of originality going for itself; got an excellent script and good performance by the leads, keep you hooked on right till the end with its lingering suspense and a feeling of tragedy. For a low budget movie they had to make it work without special effects and the approach they took by focusing on the people and their emotions worked out well. Would say it's more a drama than a sci-fi.

A big Brit Marling fan here. Everything was just right.4 stars.

Takes you places way beyond the sci-fi trip some were expecting. If you are willing to overlook the camera work's flaws it is a profound movie that's slow burning but rewarding.

I don't know why the score on this movie is so low...It was a great little indie film..

This movie sucked right from the opening scene. They call the movie Another Earth and foreshadow main character going to it so often yet they don't even explore the concept of the mirror Earth.
½ December 9, 2016
This low-key indie sci-fi boasts of a perfect mix of pathos and mystery. The discovery of Earth Two serves as the backdrop for a painful love story. Mike Cahillâ(TM)s confident direction and Brit Marlingâ(TM)s convincing lead performance will take you to sci-fi wonderland.

An unoriginal little drama about loss, guilt, atonement, etc., with a huge amount of clichés and using the interesting concept of an alternative Earth as a cheap metaphor for a "new chance." At least Marling and Mapother do a very great job despite the weak project they are in.

I expected this to be a sci-fi movie, but it has nothing to do with it. It's more a "film d'auteur à la française". The story is slow and not very interesting.

How The Fuck Are Critics Giving these movies Positive Reviews,
It didn't have one redeem to it, Dull Acting, Stupid Story, Awful Script, Lame Scenery and Crap load of fuck messages.
I... Hate... This... Movie!

Score: 1/10

Brit Marling does a good job acting, and one cannot help but to both feel and to be drawn to her strong yet lonely character. However the film lacks the satisfactory science on which it rests its plot on, and moves too slowly to effectively mix plot and romance.
½ July 15, 2016
I'll rate it slightly lower due to the amateurish camera work, but Another Earth is a nice low budget indie sci-fi gem that is ambitious and well acted. Brit Marling co-writes the movie and does well, and so does William Mapother. The themes of redemption and coping are explored well, and the movie cuts off right when it needs to, leaving everything ambiguous with a hundred different endings and theories. Its definitely more along the lines of Coherence (2013), another low budget sci fi that is ambitious with shitty camera work.
