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

I saw this on Mexican TV back around 1990, it seemed already old then and looked like it didn't have much money. The story intrigued and many moments stayed with me long past a casual viewing experience. The completely unknown cast worked well.
This was probably a bit of an arty pre-new age answer to "The Forbin Project" (sp)meets "Contact" (the former of which dates around the same time). I've scanned e-bay etc and could never find a copy -guess it was pre-DVD. Hope the intriguing sometimes funny little film gets dusted off and re-released,(or given a lot of the drek passing for science fiction, it could prove worth a revisit with more money.
