It's a very unusual set...
23 August 1999 | by (Göteborg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It's very unusual, especially for a not-Hollywood-production to have these kinds of sets. A large amount of money must have been spent on creating the fascinating sets inside the body.

Some parts reminded me of a movie seen at biology lectures in school but this is a whole lot of more fun to it. If you get the chance of seeing it - do so!
