From beginning to finish you know this film will not be like many others. It does not start off as strongly as seems to have been intended, but what does come across is a certian flavor that contunies throughout the film.
The child in this flick is kinda memorible, due to the unique way the charater is presented. There aren't many films where you first meet someone wearing cardboard box.
The theme seems to be very dramatic, and touchs on some very phiolsopical questions.. all the while having a little mystery of it's own. Is the boy really a martain?
The thing that strikes me the best about the film is the ending.. it leaves the question up your interputation. The kid appears to confess to not being one, and sure, that light could be a helicoptor..
But do most helicoptors have the shape of a bilmp?
