Strange doctor secretly experiments with androids on his space station. His assistant is Max, a curious android who wants to see the world and meet a girl. Criminals Maggie and two other hide on their station and soon violence erupts.
Elisabeth, a 11 year old girl, visits Marcel, a mute gardener every morning with whom she shares a very particular friendship. During three years, their bond grows stronger, as Marcel seems to be the only person she can connect to.
Eccentric scientist Dr.Daniel and his shy, clumsy assistant Max, lead a quiet life on their space station where they carry out illegal research into androids, until they receive an unwelcome visit from three fugitives from justice, one of whom is female. Dr.Daniel and Max are both interested in her, but one of them has rather more sinister intentions than just romance. At first, they all get along, but when one of the criminals becomes psychotic, violence erupts. Meanwhile, the space police is on their trail. Written by

The lift (elevator) is almost certainly not a real one but via lighting effects this is not obvious. The lights in the elevator car are apparently off while travelling between floors and are lit when the car comes to a stand at the destination floor. Although this is strange operation of the car lights the viewer accepts this and the elevator seems quite realistic. See more »

Yes, Dr. Daniel?
Max, what is that noise?

I was doing some research, Sir.

Special thanks to the unnamed individuals who contributed to the fabrication and operation of Max 404, without whom this film would not have been possible. See more »
I think most of the budget of this New World sci-fi film probably went toward Klaus Kinski. It's amazing how many low-budget specials this guy has made. Nevertheless, "Android" does have some charms to it. Don Keith Oper does double duty as screenwriter and Max, the android of the title and helps make this somewhat interesting. Neither of the ladies in this film really had much of a career after it and watching them one can see why. They don't really bring much to the party. The director does a decent job considering the budget limitations and went on to a successful career doing TV shows and occasional TV movies. But can you guess which of these performers actually appeared in "Saving Private Ryan"? Yes, tough guy Mendes, Crodton Hardester.
