Storyline

The "Green Planet" belongs to another solar system. Through the simplicity of their lifestyle those who live there are a real step ahead of us: they spend their time concentrating their knowledge, strength and energy on the development of their minds and bodies in a natural environment which they dearly preserve and care for. Once a year, they gather in the crater of a dormant volcano to decide which planets they ought to send messengers to. There are volunteers for every planet except Earth, which is considered too polluted and too dangerous. One woman alone, Mila, decides to go there to seek out her identity, as Osam the old sage has revealed to her that she was conceived there during a previous trip by her father. Written by Polly_Kat

It will change you
2 January 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie on Youtube, I was amazed about the foresight of her maker, Coline Serreau. That's why it's a shame after its release in 1996 this movie was banned in the EU and neglected in the rest of the World. It was far ahead of its time, and the ones who banned it knew that it would change the people, as a result of which they would lose their power. However, times have changed and the DVD can now be downloaded for free at www.romanovs.info/labelleverte.php with English, Russian or Portuguese subtitles. This movie is no SF anymore but will be our true reality in the next few years. Dear ones, watch this amazing movie, and let it change you, so that you can change the world.
