Synopsis

Twelve-year-old Simone feels painfully disconnected from the world after witnessing the brutal death of her mother. Simone, a solitary multimedia artist in her twenties, is struggling to control her crushing panic attacks and keep her day job in an underground parking lot. And Simone, a sixty-year-old physicist, is giving a conference on the nature of time. The three Simones’ lives are intertwined in a labyrinthine meta-world where timeframes overlap, characters multiply, and storylines repeat and expand. But, for all its shuttling forward and back through time, ENDORPHINE remains grounded in the Simones’ inner lives — it’s an artistic examination of scientific phenomena that also poignantly explores how people deal with trauma.

    Bold, Raw and Uninhibited

    There are different worlds beyond the physical realm, and they are just
    as real. Endorphine takes us into dreams, premonitions, hypnosis,
    unconsciousness, past and future, alternate realities, different
    characters and ages, death, passion and fear, pain, hope, science,
    religion and more. As hard as it may be to imagine, they all merge into
    one. Expect at the completion of the film to look for the remnants of
    your shattered brain among the seat cushions, candy wrappers and stale
    popcorn.

    We explore these parallel universes through the character of Simone,
    and at various stages and spheres of her life. Simone foresees,
    witnesses and revisits the brutal death of her mother. She disconnects
    from world and those around her in the wake of this.

    Endorphine explores how people deal with trauma. The film is heroically
    bold, raw and uninhibited. It is a puzzle for sure, yet a fascinating
    one. Story lines and scenes repeat, expand, merge and fold into
    themselves. There are layers of meaning everywhere. I truly believe
    these different realms (i.e. dreams, visions, premonitions etc. .) are
    as real as what we can touch, and yet I certainly don’t understand
    them. I doubt anyone does. This is why it is so wonderful to explore
    such themes in the transforming, influential and magical medium of
    film. The director was the cinematographer for one of my favorite films
    of all time; Incendies. The connection between Incendies and this film
    is evident. I wish Turpin and Villeneuve still collaborated on this
    film. It might have perfected Endorphine, which lacks the symmetry of
    Incendies. Seen at the Toronto International Film Festival 2015.

    Are You Kidding Me?

    Picture perfect collage of first year movie making disaster! Why waste
    time and money on a nothing story line, bare bones scenery, and
    build-up to non-existent finale? Whoever wrote the previous wonderful
    reviews must be related to movie (not really a movie, more of a
    scrapbook of potential scenes practice) makers. The psychology and the
    mental adventure in this Alice-In-Wonderland is a miserable fail.
    Period. Could have been a really cool movie with editing, story-line,
    and follow through of a carefully threaded ending. Too bad. It just
    plain sucks.

    It is bad, really really bad.

    This movie should never have been made. Sorry, wait a minute no YOU
    should be sorry for making such experimental trash.
