Story: Romantic thriller directed by Wim Wenders in which the story centers on two lovers, Danielle Flinders (Alicia Vikander) and James More (James McAvoy), who are separated by thousands of miles as they both face life-or-death situations. James is a British intelligence agent who is being held captive by jihadist fighters in Somalia.
As he endures his captivity, his thoughts drift to marine bio-mathematician Danielle, the women he fell for the previous Christmas. Danielle, meanwhile, is thinking of James as her submersible explores the depths of the ocean floor, and gets into its own dangers, not even knowing if James is still alive.
Best Quotes from Trailer:
James More: So, what’s down there at the deepest part of the sea?
Danielle Flinders: Close your eyes. Close them. The ocean has five layers. The first contains all the plant life and coral reefs. The next layer is the twilight zone, all of the colors and light vanish and the blackness you’re in now, no one can reach you down there.
Danielle Flinders: [to James] Whatever memory you have of submergence is there, in the blue water.
Danielle Flinders: [to James] This is the other world in our world. It’s not dust to dust, that’s for sure. It’s water to water.
Wolfgang: Somalia is not a good idea, James.
James More: I know.
Wolfgang: Good luck, James.
James More: Okay, I’m in.
Danielle Flinders: I’m in too.
James More: I don’t want death, Dani, not in this place. I want to be beside you.
James More: I’m going to remember this.
Danielle Flinders: [to James] You can open your eyes.
