Storyline

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 <armin@sfb288.math.tu-berlin.de>

A live action version of the comics succesfully captures their mood
8 July 2002 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Being familiar with Enki Bilal's work I was happy to get a chance to see this film, which is on limited supply in Europe. The feel and looks of the comics are well realized in this live action film, situated in a kind of post- apocalyptic France. Apart from the scenes situated on the moon, where the dictatorial Mac B'ee family is ruling. Their search for the former organ donor Tykho Moon, who himself is amnesiac after the first operation, to cure the family from a strange disease, provides the plotline. The actors are well chosen, matching the drawings of Bilal characters. Moreover they're top French actors. I wish more American actors would sometimes choose to do more daring and interesting stuff. The decors and costumes were nice but a bit too obvious sometimes. I did enjoy the icey blue teint covering it all though. This depressing constant paleness in the sky contrasted with an image of the Eiffel Tower with the upper half cut off is just brilliant and still makes me smile thinking about it now. The film is capturing enough and the plot revealing enough till the end to also satisfy people who don't care for Bilal comics. Pre-Amelie (if I may) Jeunet et Caro fans as well as people who like more bizarre French suspense like l'Appartement should have a good time watching this film.
