Frequencies (OXV: The Manual) by Darren Paul Fisher, 2013
In an alternate reality where "frequencies" determine one's level of success in life, low-end Zak falls for Marie, who's much farther up the scale. Complicating things further, their difference means Zak can only see Marie one minute a year.
The theory in which the movie is departing is interesting. The topic develops into an impossible love story as well as a scientific experiment, teasing our curiosity on how they will solve the impossible case, implying more and more for the humanity and the danger of changing the order of things. It is logical all the way, although the character of the best friend of Zak goes a little bit too far beyond the theme, making it a melting pot of theories and loosing the audience from the one theme they had strong and creating holes in the theory. Overall, it is an original script and film, with a great cast.
