Quirky SF gem gently explores the robot's point of view.
16 July 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Set in Amman, Jordan during Black September, when the PLO attempted to take over the kingdom by force, this odd little movie features an ongoing dialog between a British journalist and an android in the form of an attractive woman. She's the survivor of a contact mission to Earth. The political dimension of their dialog largely falls flat, but the ideas about robots that the movie explores are fascinating. Look for the discussion of the typewriter - she complains that his pounding of the keys was 'hurting it' and of the vacuum cleaner, which she likens to a rat.
