By September, Chris and Linda were ready. They were not astronomers, but electronics experts. They planned to make contact with the canal builders with a new type of transmitter, based on blueprints Chris found while in Nuremberg, Germany. Using a small steerable antenna and a special receiver to receive distant signals, they began transmitting.
At first, only their own messages were returned, but then, with an idea suggested by their son and the help of a naval codebreaker, they finally are able to exchange some rudimentary messages. At first there was worldwide euphoria, but then panic sets in when it was realized their lives were about to be turned upside down. The Western economy collapses.
Washington is rattled. The decoding operation is transferred to the Pentagon; all decoded messages will be classified. But then, when the first religious message is decoded, the President allows its release. The panic in the West turns to joy and the inspired religious downtrodden in Russia overthrow their communist government. World peace at last. . . .
Overall: Curiously, the whole world seemingly believes that the Martians have been contacted, that God resides on Mars, however, circumstances have prevented them from learning the true source of some of these messages. Curiouser still, the vague clues on the remaining messages leaves the audience at sea as well ... you see ... the devil is in the details. . . .
Picture (DVD - 2006): 2.5 to 3, black & white. Subtitles: none. Extras: trailers & intermission films.
