“Modern fairy tales flaunt their worlds. Upside Down is rightfully proud of its majesty, and unconcerned with its rules. No one questions why Hansel & Gretel approach a candy home; there is no attempt to play into its logic. Upside Down requires the use of rules to function, and throws them to the wayside to serve as a playing field for wayward lovers. Juan Solanas’ piece is fixated on minor incidents as his world burgeons with class discrimination, erupting war, corporate lockdowns, and inhuman law. Adam and Eden are incapable of superseding the importance of those elements until a protracted ending slips in a notion to contrary, a twist that lends more value in what is to come than what the audience just saw.”
