arrival-2016-poster-7

A film by Denis Villeneuve

Cast: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker

This has to be the master piece of Dennis Villeneuve. Wait until his next picture which I can’t wait. For now let’s talk about this one. It looks to me as if the encounter of the third kind has been rewritten and what an intelligent screenplay to it all off.

When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe a team headed by lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – are brought together to investigate. To try to talk to them, to decipher their language. It is making some other countries very nervous and the team races against the clock to try to avoid the global war. Will they make it on time?

Amy Adam has this hypnotic breaking performance in which communication, purpose and time are key.Villeneuve masterfully creates intrigue on a grand and personal scale. Based on Ted Chiang’s short story Story of Your Life, Eric Heisserer’s screenplay makes it look like you are witnessed something that is life changing. Arrival has a spiritual feeling where there is an authenticity in the story and we are seeing trough the clear blue eyes of the story’s vulnerable female protagonist.US army’s recruitment of Louise Banks (Adams), a top linguist who has previously assisted the government when a Farsi translation was required. The lead a brilliant female protagonist and puts her in a situation where she is going to try to decipher some king of language. The intellectual excitement makes the film run along just fine. However the cinematography (by Bradford Young) is breathtaking and the ending perfect.
