"Now you know..."
This scene thrilled and strole my whole mind. So I was like, What. The. Heck.
As a chinese speaker, no offence, but there is no way he can understand why Amy Adam's lines here....
LLADORIDO But in fairness to Amy Adams, she never studied Mandarin. 🤔
I dont get it why Chang shows his phone number to her and why he repeats her the last words of his wife?
Thank u masters ✍🙏🙏💜💜🕎🕎🎶🎵🕎🕎🌠👁🤳💓💓💅💅🎻🥁🥁🕯🕯🍪🧜♀️🥂💟🛴
Burst out laughing in the theatre with this scene. You phone me on my private numba.....
Did she really say that?
quintessential villeneuve. could not have made for a more satisfying ending with all that tension.
Great scene. Question though. She's "remembering" a future event, right? Why is she surprised about it in the future? Surely she's expecting to have this convo with him.
you're still thinking about time as a linear concept. I think the point is that for the heptapods, time doesn't move forwards or backwards, it just is. Whatever part of her life she's experiencing she's living it for the first time. But she doesn't experience them in chronological order.
There's something really quantic about that scene. A bit like Schrodinger's cat.
I also thought about this. Maybe it's one of the possible futures (and thinking in 4th dimension opens up this skill). Maybe the future options even depend on ones mindset and what's physically possible in the present (like using this information from a possible future and having access to a satellite phone in the present). Or it's just the typical plot hole/time travel error :)
This scene gave me crazy goosebumps while watching it in the theater.
i cried so much during this part
Una oda a la condicion humana, a los limites de la especie, monumental obra maestra.

The lady in white in the background is his wife.
This is the best scene in the movie, very powerful.

Still don't get it
Athletic - Dashole What don't you get? 🤔
I’m glad I didn’t waist $20 at the theaters on this stupid dumb ass movie. I saw this crap for free on tv and was pissed at how fucking stupid it was. I give it a siskle and Ebert two middle finger up 🖕🏼🖕🏼 and a fuck you rating!
JUST LIKE I WORKED WITH MR..MUAKAMI FROM THE OTHER SIDE....TO HELP STOP THE WHALE SLAUGHTER !!!
Those fuckers from China, Russia and others would surely cause humanity's extinction if we were ever visited by aliens.
I think I’m overdosing on my medication; but I’m his scene is a great thing to watch before the end
Time is a flat circle ⭕️
Take off your mask
You do this again..
time is a vortex of stacked flat circles each one smaller than the previous one
Hey does anyone know what the last words off his wife was as in English as I can't get the English version
David White “in war, there is no winner- only widows and orphans”
China saves the day. This is MAGA country. Trump 2020 HOLLA
"In war there are no winners, only widows and orphans”
"In war kings do the fighting and the peasants do the dying" -Nilfgaardian peasants
One of the most powerful scenes ever to grace a film
No laser beams or special effects either
I didn‘t understand the movie, any explanation?
@Hawaiian Prestige Cars The Heptapods didn't want to save the planet at this particular moment (there was no threat, just China and Co. wanting to attack the aliens) but maybe they foresaw another event (although the story differs, the movie somehow reminded me of Arthur C. Clarke - Childhood's End). They just wanted to give mankind their gift of thinking in non-linearily time. So in 3000 years, mankind somehow helps the Heptapods. Maybe the Heptapods knew that someday mankind will eradicate themselves and this language will unite us instead, so our civilization can reach the next step and maybe even gain further skills that are needed to help the Heptapods.This still doesn't answer whether or not one can alternate the future or if the path is set. The Heptapods or Louise could just have done nothing, but then the future outcome would change. For better or worse.
Bogdan Ciomaga watch it this weekend.Incredible movie. One of the most underrated ever.Crazy emotional
@Hawaiian Prestige Cars Nope, don't think I've watched it
Bogdan Ciomaga on a sidenote, do you know the movie Vanilla sky?
Bogdan Ciomaga I will watch the movie again and come back to you.
My goosebumps have goosebumps
Great scene. The fate of the entire world is decided by a simple phone call. This shouldn't have worked, but thanks to Denis Villeneuve it feels properly epic, tense and somehow beautiful. People help each other through communication across time and space.
in physics, time is shown to be a man-made perception problem. Time, the past, present, and what we think of as the future are happening all at the same "Time". She has been taught how to communicate to all points in her life. Hence the un-ending circle and the meaning of the hematoads presence then, their lives and language.
"In war there are now winners, only windows " is what she said
Pretty inappropriate time to show her your dick pic
It’s interesting how Denis achieved a much more emotional, climactic cross cutting between scenes, compared to Nolan’s Interstellar.
I juuuust need to know where I can find those earrings 😬
What are these comments lol they make no sense
Rarely have I ever been so overwhelmed emotionally in a film and this scene just completely blew me away. I was shaken until the next day.
YOU WILL STOP THE COVE IN JAPAN !!!!!!
If only her Chinese wasn't so terrible lmao
I want that soldier, coordinates gorgeous sexy dude!
The most perfect movie ever made
No.There is no such thing as a perfect movie.
Is like Dr, Louis from the future didn´t know the General´s phone number, but, she shoud know it, because there is peace and the General did not attacked the shells. So, what I understand is that Dr. Louis get the phone number in the future after she used it in the pass, but in the in the pass, Dr. Louis extracts the phone number from herself when General Chang is telling it to her...
Its more of her consciousness was transfered to the future while simultaneously living in the present thats why she does not know some information.
Louise must haVE feLT such shock [ wHen she realized] that to be the center of a circLE you had to sTand outside of it az weLL
Isn’t this character supposed to be a linguist? I bet the aliens speak better Chinese than she does. Hollywood has made Mandarin gibberish......again!! And the worst is that a blog by the movie’s foreign language coaching team claims Amy Adams’s character “speaks to the general in Mandarin flawlessly......” HOW DARE YOU??!!
@Phraker exactly. Most people who can speak several languages still do best in the one(s) then often use. It's just about training like with everything else. I read a lot of these "her Mandarin is bad" comments and I wonder how good these people speak other languages.
a linguist means you are a scholar of the technicalities of language not of languages themselves
lala, i want you to take a chill pill
Woah dude chill
lmao her mandarin is bad
This movie is one of my all time favorite movies behind interstellar and avatar. The arrival just has that interstellar vibe with the time travel stuff.
Yes I agree, the arrival definitely took some time to understand it which made it so good! Both movies had very deep ending. Im personally more interested in space which is why Interstellar is at the top of my list but both movies played into the theme of time. And your idea of aliens mixing with the interstellar journey sounds like it would make for a great movie.
As much as i love interstellar, I feel like the way that Arrival presented non-linear time and the consequences was FAR superior than interstellar. After watching interstellar a few times, i was still confused at a lot of things (mostly just everything after he enters the black hole). Whereas with Arrival I got exactly what the movie was trying to say the first time. And that's not a knock on how much each movie asks from the viewer. I'd honestly argue that Arrival require more focus and intellect to understand the true message. I just also happen to think that they executed it much better.Unrelated, how cool would it have been to have a movie first 2/3 of interstellar then the last 1/3 of Arrival. Like an interstellar journey the with the quality of Interstellar, then an interaction with aliens and handling of non-linear time with the quality of Arrival??
obram17 no I haven’t but I’ll look into it
Jordan Bakos... have you watched UFO? With Gillian Anderson from the X-files,it’s so good! 👌
only just saw this movie tonight and found it very very entertaining and so well done. An alien contact movie done brilliantly
Love the soundtrack
Ro Dil "One of Twelve" by Johánn Johánnsson
Stephen Norris Me, too, Stephen ✋
but how did she found genrals private number just by knowing 'her past'?
@Lucas Henryck just a guess but I think when he passes his phone to her it has his number on the screen
@Lucas Henryck Please read about the different dimensions, especifically the fifth dimension. A fifth dimensional being can live in both past, present and future simoultaneously. While the main character is not a fifth dimensional being, she was able to acquire their language and thus gaining an ability.
But what i don't understand is how she can know his number in the present. Because if he said, in the future, she called him and knew his number, how can she know, in the present, his number without ever seeing?
It was the future, not the past. She saw into her future and the future provided the information she needed to make it come true.
Death to America!!!!!!
THE E.TS WILL CONTINUE TO STRIKE THE PLANET UNTIL ALL DOLPHIN AND WHALE SLAUGHTER STOPS !!!!!
Shut the fuck up
Gives me chills...everytime!
This scene is absolutely beautiful.
M M lol I cried at how beautiful this scene was
THE UNITED STATES IS BEING HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR HURTING MY DAUGHTERS !!!!!!!
one of the most powerful scenes of any story. so remarkable and moving
One of the most intense scenes of any movie I’ve seen. Well done Dennis Villeneuve and team.
I love how General Shang knew
I know your picture is supposed to resemble a hair on screen but it looks like heptapod B
@Phat Knob He is a Chinese General, so getting to know who called him on that particular day shouldn't represent a big obstacle. After that he most likely got curious about Louise Banks and informed himself about the concept of Heptapod language, that she is writing/teaching about. So he got to learn about her way of thinking and knew it's important to show her the number and telling the story about his wife. One can sort of interprete this as a compliment for the General too, showing his intelectual potential.I think these underlying/hidden statements is what made me like Arrival so much. It doesn't explain everything in detail cause there is no reason for if you watch it properly. Even if it lets room for interpretation, in my opinion that makes it even better.
@Phat Knob Through the love of his wife. He realised after the call that the only way she could have got the number was if he gave it to her and the only way she could have known the dying words of his wife was if he told her. And in that desperate moment his phone rang. SO, somehow he must meet her and give her the information for it all to happen. As he admits "I do not claim to know how your mind works, but I believe it was important for you to see that..."
How did he know though?
CHINA AND JAPAN !!!!!!
