    "Arrival (2016)" is a film with several layers and can be interpreted on many levels. It is categorized by many as science fiction, but it is much more than that. It is a film about our existence, about time, about being, about language, about love, about God or god or reality, existence. It is a film that can be viewed in many ways and that holds up to seeing it several times, over and over again - and you will find new things every time. - Rosemari Södergren
