Reviews of Story of Your Life (1998)

Review by voralfred (2007-02-15)
Aliens. Quite benevolent. They came, and left. They were more alien that you can imagine. Their perception of time was not sequential, as ours, it was global. They left some documents, and enough understanding of their language that it is possible to decipher them. But by doing so... the perception of time of the linguist changes.. She begins to think in a different way.. Whose story is she writing?
A fascinating reflexion on time and life.
