A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives.

"You may not be able to figure it out, but that's part of the point of this sensually-directed, sensory-laden experiential (and experimental) piece of art that washes over you like a sonorous bath of beguiling visuals, ambient sounds and corporeal textures."
- Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
"A romance, a thriller, and a science-fiction drama, Upstream Color tantalizes viewers with an open-ended narrative about overcoming personal loss."
- Simon Abrams, Chicago Sun-Times
"Upstream Color is lush, rhythmic, and deeply sensual, a film of exceptional beauty."
- Slant Magazine
"With its fragmentation and mysteries, Upstream Color offers itself up as a puzzle as well as a philosophical toy that you can spin and spin until the cafe closes and kicks you into the night."
- Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"I’ve seen Upstream Color twice and liked it enormously while never being certain of anything."
- David Edelstein, New York Magazine (Vulture)
"Upstream Colors certainly is something to see if you’re into brilliant technique, expressive editing, oblique storytelling, obscuritanist speculative fiction or discovering a significant new actress."
- Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
