Storyline

A young Russian boy, Thomas Minton, travels to New York as a passenger on a Russian freighter. Close to Ellis Island he gets off and thus starts his journey to America the same way as all immigrants in former times. Thomas is searching for the family of one of his ancestors, who had emigrated decades ago, but once sent a letter home together with a sample of his new profession: 3D-Photography. The boy follows his relative's traces by counter-checking the old 3D-Photographs of New York (using an antique viewer) with the same places and how they look today. This way, the audience gets to see the Big Apple in former times as well as today. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Truly Amazing!
1 November 2006 | by robbisSee all my reviews

It was one boring Sunday afternoon...I had nothing to do so I decided to check out the new IMAX theatre. They played this movie and I almost never recovered after it. Never would I imagine that I would be so moved by a film. I would say this is the perfect movie, both visually and storytelling. I is done with so much emotion. I cried and was completely taken by this experience. It really shows New York in a beautiful way. You can almost smell the city watching this. Beautiful film with mindblowing music by Bond composer John Barry. I immediately bought the soundtrack after I left the theatre. Just incredible! For those people (I can imagine a lot of them) who have not seen this...GO SEE IT! It is most likely very difficult to find nowdays though which is a big shame.
