Excellent movie!
21 July 2000 | by (Goteborg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I got this title on Video CD without any prior information on it. I didn't even know what genre it was. After seeing it it's one of my favorites!

The plot evolves very subtly for about the first half. Then through some fluid storytelling it all changes into a sci-fi mystery. Beautifully shot and very good acting. Almost dreamlike settings mix with harsh laboratory milieus. This contrast is in parallel with the story that first evolves around the love of life and later the sorrow of death and some really weird consequences.

If you get the chance to see it and you like romantic thrillers this is one for you.
