Arrival

After a long movie break I managed to see one during this holiday season. Arrival is not the standard SF movie, as it is not packed with action and special effects. It's rather a philosophical story about communication and how a language can shape our mind. What is more weird is that after seeing the movie I realized I read the book on which it is based a few years ago. It is a short story and I wrote about it at that moment here. The screenplay was adapted and the focus of the movie is on the interaction between civilizations and not on the personal story of Louise which is actually the key. I read the book once again after seeing the movie and, strangely, they complement somehow and you understand better both of them in the end.

So my advice is to consume both, no moderation here :)
