Combined with the way they discover each other, the pair brings dynamics, humor, and integrity. People there relies on scavenged food and crude machines to survive. It creates the feeling of fear and how hunters can become the hunted. Do they argue the specifics of whose point of view is accurate, or do they offer each other a hand and meet eye-to-eye? It creates interesting and methodical ways of seeing the story from another point of view, perhaps not opposite down but more with thought. As thought provoking as the film sounds to be, the antagonist can and should be labeled as rather stereotypical. Patema lives in an underground world and, although she is a princess, she is held back by the rules imposed by the elders of her clan.
Together they master the art of navigating competing gravitational forces and set out to discover the secret that keeps their worlds apart.
