The McBee family has erected a government over a future 'colony', that looks like a run-down Paris divided into sectors by the Berlin Wall. All male family members suffer from a mysterious disease and are in urgent need of organ transplants. The perfect donor, Tykho Moon, probably has been killed in a fire, but according to rumours he's still alive. Although assassins stalk the family members, the McBees start a hunt for Tykho. Trying to escape the dragnet, Alex, a sculptor, meets Lena, a killer posing as a whore. Written by Armin Ortmann <>

Bilal : the new master of French science fiction
2 November 1998 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

The work of Bilal is enchanting in the way it transports us to a world that just might exist. Although we are not quite sure yet where we will be in a hundred years, Bilal doesn't care for reality while creating his own. Tykho Moon is a direct transition from paper to negative as it becomes a comic book coming to life, each character more disturbing than the previous one, all obsessed by their own phobias but all hoping to find a brighter future.

Tykho Moon is set on the moon, a place now ruled by a dictator, Mac Bee, who is dying and can only be saved by one doner, Anikst. The chase begins as he refuses to come to the help of his ruler, fearing death. Along the way he meets Lean, a prostitute played by Julie Delpy, who helps him in his quest for freedom.

The film not only recreates the world Bilal has gotten his readers used to, but also brings together an incredible cast that give credibility to his imagination. Although not technically perfect, Tykho Moon is a good first feature film that deserves to become one of the best science fiction film France has ever produced, following the steps of Farenheit 451 (by Francois Truffaut) and The City of Lost Children (by Caro and Jeunet).
