What struck me immediately is how both have the same feel. Tranquil scenes, dominated by nature. Similar minimal accompanying soundtracks. Odd scenery; the protagonists seem to mostly ignore (which of course you'd expect to be fairly common for sci-fi, but still something feels similar in the way the production is done).
At a glance, the list of producers, musicians, cinematography, etc. seems distinct. But I can't shake the feeling that they might perhaps be more indirectly connected. Alternatively, it might just showcase a recent sci-fi trend.
Is there any connection?
