    Nowhere Netflix Movie Review 2023: A Hit or A Miss?

    Last Updated

    Nowhere Movie Review: A Hit or A Miss? – Humans are wired to feel fear. Scientific studies have shown that fear and anxiety, which we feel nowadays, is an evolutionary trait inherited from our ancestors. Fear and anxiety have been the most basic adaptive evolutionary trait of early humans who had to constantly be vigilant of the threats around them. The threat of the wild.

    And so, almost every human being is bound to the other with this inheritance. The fear of the unknown. And what could be most unknown, the most feared but nature itself? When something as unpredictable and as powerful as nature is your enemy, how do you survive? With this thought, we bring you the tale of a mother’s sheer will to survive against nature in our Nowhere Netflix Film Review!

    Nowhere Review – Plot

    Nowhere narrates the tale of a pregnant woman named Mia, who while trying to flee a totalitarian regime in Spain with her husband, finds herself trapped in a shipping container, floating adrift in the sea towards – nowhere. The film follows Mia’s resourcefulness, her struggle, and her sheer will to keep her and her newborn baby alive while the container threatens to sink with no food, water, or land in sight.

    Nowhere Movie Review

    Nowhere begins with chaos all around a country overtaken by an authoritative regime. A dystopian world where Spain, due to a shortage of resources, has become the place where guns rule over everything, where those who are vulnerable need to be shot dead to save the scarce resources, and where women, children, and elderly – nobody is spared. More death simply means more food for the living. The fine line between life and death, good or bad, has blurred completely. In such a chaotic scenario, we meet Mia and her husband Nico, trying to flee to Ireland which is presumed to be beyond the influence of the “regime”.

    The plan is to leave the country in a shipping container. However, in a turn of events Mia and Nico are separated. The women in Mia’s container are hidden behind a false end which is promptly discovered by the authorities, where they shoot every single person except Mia, who is hiding on a pile of boxes, out of sight. She soon finds herself drifting alone in the sea after a turbulent storm when her container is thrown overboard.

    The film’s crux is loaded and driven by the idea of the unknown, the nature vs human dichotomy. Mia is completely helpless and at the mercy of the sea. The thrill factor is also derived from this very dichotomy – can a mere mortal human survive against a larger force like the sea? When the unsinkable ship, Titanic, could not overcome the whims of the natural world then what can a mere pregnant woman do?

    The trope of a pregnant woman in a survival thriller is quite obvious as a choice to heighten the stakes and make the viewer as involved as possible. The filmmakers seem to cash on the common idea of motherhood as the strongest virtue of human beings, where a mother’s sheer will to safeguard her child’s life and interests, transcends any threat of the unknown. We see the transition in Mia’s character from when she thinks she has lost everything to when she gives birth and fights to keep her child alive amidst all odds.

    However, as much as the film tries to keep the audience’s attention in the first half, it soon loses in the second. The coincidences are just way too many to predict the intention of the film. Mia not only finds useful tools to keep the container from sinking but is also able to collect drinking water from the miraculous rain just about when she most needs it.

    Moreover, she has suffered one too many injuries where there is a dedicated scene of her sewing her ripped flesh. One wonders how she recovers from a wound without any signs of septic resulting from exposure or how she is able to survive in extreme freezing conditions without developing hypothermia.

    Is Nowhere based on a true story?
