Conclusion: Even the lowest common denominator among so-called popcorn movies typically have at least the semblance of narrative sense, but Switch evidently decided that a comprehensible plot was a low priority.
Summary: Sidestepping the usual eco-docu strategy (i.e., set up a desperate, end-of-the-world scenario and then yank the viewer in off the ledge), the global-energy movie "Switch" takes a far less hysterical route.
Conclusion: I wonder why Switch has been cropped from its original aspect ratio. Anchor Bay-UK also released a cropped version of Richard Berry's 22 Bullets , also a contemporary French film, though distributed by EuropaCorp. Could it be that someone isn't paying attention?
