The movie has an interesting presentation - a philosophy class meeting on the last day is given a final assignment by the teacher (James D'Arcy): in the event of a nuclear disaster, each student is given a description (Gelato Maker, Real Estate Agent, Orthopedic Surgeon, Carpenter, Harpist, Poet - etc) and, later, a secondary trait (being homosexual, sterile, loads of gold) - but out of the 20 of them, only 10 can fit in the bunker. They must decide who will live and who will die - but as this experiment goes on, more personal feelings come into account. While it's not as deep as it wants to be, it has good acting, nice effects and some surprising twists.

A very interesting and thought provoking movie throughout about a philosophy teacher (and his students who decides to do one last experiment with them giving them the dilemma of an impending nuclear apocalypse, they must determine which ten of them would take shelter underground and reboot the human race what would happen is played out for us on screen.. i really enjoyed this movie. it was a very interesting story and concept. it looked great was well acted and very thought provoking throughout that was the design it seems. also i loved the ending.
its hard to take it too seriously as what you see you know isn't real but it doesn't stop you from thinking and putting yourself in their shoes. good movie if you want something you have never seen before thats original and makes you think …
