Frequencies (2013) is a British science-fiction film with an interesting plot. In a world where everyone emits a specific frequency, reminding us of a social score, which determines every aspect of their life – love, education, career, wait-time for a train and everything else. For nearly an hour the film proceeds slow, with repetitions of important scenes, making it tiring, but the last ten minutes go bustling.
The low-frequency “Zak” is attracted to a privileged high-frequency “Marie”, but every time they come near for more than a minute, bad things happen in their surroundings. But Zak doesn’t give up, he works hard to find a way to be with Marie, did he succeed?, and what does he find?
The main characters are all given names of famous experts like Isaac-Newton, Marie-Curie & Theodor-Adorno, I was expecting some connection with the reel characters with the real ones, but there was none.
The film is available for streaming from Plex.TV service.
