Great movie
7 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too saw this movie on TV in Germany a long time ago. It is great. The glass architecture, the lockstep marching, the reduction of human life to mathematical equations, everybody being a number, is very chilling and disturbing. The movie is based on the novel of the same name ("Wir" in German, "We" in English) by Yevgeny Zamyatin, written in 1920 and a precursor and inspiration for "1984" and "Brave New World." I became a fan of Zamyatin (English spelling, Samjatin is the spelling in German) because of this movie. I have been looking for a copy of this movie for a long time. I even contacted the TV station (ZDF) for a DVD or video cassette, but they couldn't (or wouldn't) provide me with a copy. They really should release it on DVD.
