Before we Vanish 2017 movie review by Jitu Das film reviews



Before we Vanish is at first looks like a normal sci fi about alien invading human bodies and planning to destroy the humankind. But this movie gradually leads to a better understanding about human personality and what is it that makes us human. There are different parts and emotions in human, the biology, the psyche, the emotions, but the ones that gives it all a holistic meaning is LOVE, without which existence of humankind is utterly meaningless. The subtle meaning of this movie is that alien trying to understand humankind reaped many concepts from human like family, work, war, frustration etc, but when the alien in Shinji's body reaped the concept of love from his wife, guide Narumi, everything changed. 

A beautiful movie with meaningful subtle message to humanity, to not lose love from our heart, which is the every essence of humanity.
 The movie is bit longer, it could have been a bit fast pace. The soundtrack is good and very engaging in the moments. The sci-fi
