I might say that this film is brilliant and not going to throw words, putting dozens. This independent film, which gently leads the viewer to thoughts on important interesting topics. Each will take from his own hidden meaning and your thoughts.

In my view this film look at mankind side. With her, they say, know better. And Prot is a tool that brings to us food for thought, your strange reasoning. Spacey played just great, a very strong actor, time-tested. It surrender, unearthly serenity, kindness, naivety made the character memorable FR. It like a big child who just born trying to learn and understand this world. And if you try to look his eyes, life looks in a different color.

The entire film, the context is the family and relations of loved ones. For me this is the hidden meaning of the movie. The Director recalls the value of relationships between people. This is not enough Prot. Well and of course there are more global sense of humanity, his disadvantages advantages that we miss mind.

The ending is wonderful, ambiguous and leaves the viewer to speculation and faith. Faith in miracles...

Every atom in your body came from an exploding star. And maybe the atoms in your left hand belonged to another star, not one from which atoms are right. It is the most poetic thing I know about physics: we are all made of Stardust...

Lawrence Krauss

We all to a certain extent, tend to be fantastic ideas. Someone finds in it only a hobby, someone — devotes such ideas of life, but, so all we aspire to stars, their thoughts and dreams.

For all the history of cinematography was shot a huge number of movies about aliens, other planets and new galaxies. Among such films it is possible to find representatives of any genres: from pure science fiction to picsina with a mixture of Thriller or horror. However, you should pay attention and science fiction with a psychological bias, because "K-pax" is not only a fantastic Foundation, and the walls painted in tones of drama and detective.

First and foremost a fascinating story: unpredictable, able to keep the viewer in naprijenie to the end. But despite that the story itself consists of several layers, lines of different characters are not seem to be complicated, and the film itself is not has the viewer a strong psychological load and leaves a bad aftertaste after watching.

Very interesting and colorful it turned out, in fact, characters. No one of them opens the viewer up to the end, but that's what makes the picture that emerged in our imagination, fascinating and exciting.

Last but not least, the film does not has a strong visual load, and constant game highlights complements the picture, the making her complete.

Verdict: "the planet of Ka-peks" — great atmospheric movie that will certainly have as fans of science fiction, so and fans of dramas.

Prot has appeared in the center of the bustling station. He says that it is not Earthman, and came from the planet K-pax. Next was a mental hospital, tests, doctors, patients, injection and acquaintance with Dr. Marco Powell, who step by step, word by the word it begins to believe!

Who is he? Mentally ill or a hoaxer with a well-crafted legend? Or really an alien who travels to light reports on other planets, and Dating? If these questions in the beginning of the film seem important and intriguing, then then he wanted to know the answer. You just want to listen to the FR, to speak with him, marvel at him openness as he looks at the world on us...

After watching this pattern, even something as silly to describe the play of Kevin spacey, to let the compliments in his address, to discuss the soundtrack or the operator's work, write about some plot and directing. Better to just trust that someone took the camera came in hospital I removed that was on really want to believe that even Kevin Spacey invented to hide the existence of Prot. I want to believe, to ask questions and seek answers, no matter what, after all, Prot looked at the world with wide open eyes even through the dark glass of his glasses...
