Heptapod B has its own visual syntax semasiographic , akin to mathematical equations, some sign languages, and the notation of music or dance. More significantly, it is not sequential. China Mieville's sci-fi novel, Embassytown, also features aliens with a totally different sort of language to those known to humans. I reviewed it HERE. The detail below is for reference, and is spoilered, because understanding this is what the story is about on the page, though not on screen.

When a ray of light hits water, it is refracted, taking a longer, but faster route. It describes light in goal-oriented terms, rather than the more familiar causal, chronological terms. It's like a lifeguard who can run faster than she can swim: she takes a longer route that has more beach and less sea, to get to the drowning person more quickly. The result is simultaneous consciousness, where you live in the present like a newborn baby and in the past and future.

For such beings, sequential speech is a slow and inefficient mode.

But if you know the effects, the end, you know the future. The two are mutually exclusive. It was released in November Arrival. I feared, from the trailers, there would be very little linguistics, physics, or philosophy, and that it would be mostly a standard CGI-heavy, alien-action movie, with the world at risk, and a Hollywood ending. The soundtrack is slightly ethereal, but not distractingly so, and Heptapod B looks beautiful and equally ethereal.

There were some new and heightened plot threads, which is OK when adapting for a different medium a new, dramatic intervention, and more international geo-political stuff. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised, though people wanting standard Hollywood fare might be disappointed.
