Set in the not-too-distant future, when the existing world economy has collapsed, and the new city-states are controlled by computers, many of which require a kind of telepathic linkage with a human counterpart. When the most important of these computers exhibits strange patterns during a crucial operation, its counterpart, a top scientist named Melody, begins having psychic experiences. For a low-budget film, a surprisingly deep exploration of emotions vs. logic and the elusive search for truth. Written by

It has been many years since I saw this film on "USA Up All Night" (with Gilbert Gotfried at that time, I believe) and I would love to see it again. It's a moody SF show with some startling visuals (the plane wreckage), some cheesy effects (the planet control center and Einstein), and a plodding feel to it that elicits a strong feeling of tension. However, what I remember the most about it was that it moved back and forth between French and English very quickly and with no subtitles, but someone who only knows English could understand it just fine. This really contributed to the other-worldly feel of the movie.
I'm not sure how it got an 8.1 here, I would rate it more around the 5-6 range. But, I would like to see it again if I could.
