'Welcome to Happiness' / 'Gattaca'

Post by RobB »

Just been watching the 1997 sci-fi classic 'Gatacca' and one scene triggered a Stina related thought. Its the scene where Ethan Hawke tries to cross a busy road without his contact lenses, which he's just disposed of to escape detection at a police road block. Uma Thurman, having just crossed the road herself, stands and waits patiently for Ethan to cross.

This brings to mind for me the promo film for 'Welcome To Happiness' where Stina crosses a busy road, walking between passing traffic, while the guy stands on the other side waiting for her.

Maybe its just a coincidence but perhaps Gattaca was an inspiration for the WTH scene?
