great post-apocalypse story
30 July 2002 | by (u s a) – See all my reviews

no way it would get greenlighted in hollywood today oh my gosh a movie that doesn't use it's dialogue to explain the plot?? great story everyone has lost their ability to speak. the hero is a man trying to survive in post war europe. he escapes a gang in a homemade plane and finds a doctor hiding a "secret" then he helps him fight off a "brute" played well by jean reno. the movie even has raining fish. how could you not like that ? this movie gives us a peek at luc besson's talent. before la femme nikita, and leon watch this with an open mind I would like to see someone pitch this idea to hollywood and see what would happen today
