Storyline

Dr.Daniel and Max are both interested in her, but one of them has rather more sinister intentions than just romance... Written by Michael Brooke <michael@everyman.demon.co.uk>

Sci-Fi cult classic
29 August 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

One of my favourites! The film has a haunting quirkiness about it. Klaus Kinski is the perfect mad scientist. The MAX404 android really projects his confusion about and desire to understand his emotions. Loved the soundtrack. This movie is not for those who only like those big Hollywood "sci-fi" films. It will appeal to those who enjoy REAL sci-fi though.
