A politicaly conscious cyber-love story
8 April 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

If you like your Sci-fi shiny and new then Level 5 will dissapoint - It's computer graphics are executed with a charming clunkiness that affords the story a sturdy grounding in reality.

Many will find the film 'hard going', but it's rare that you will find a film with a sub-plot as potent as the one here, and it's an informative and enriching experience.

Marker has, yet again, made a stunningly intimate and challenging film.
