Storyline

Thomas is a young agoraphobic man; he's afraid of coming to any kind of contact with other people, so he lives totaly isolated in his appartment. The story takes place in the near future where everything can be done through computers, so Thomas hasn't left his appartment for eight straight years. However, although his life seems complete, he misses human contact, so his psychoanalyst consults him to meet a woman through some on-line service. Is it possible for Thomas to fall in love with a woman? And if so, is he going to get out of his appartment for that woman? Written by Chris Makrozahopoulos <makzax@hotmail.com>

Really original film, well acted and high production values!
28 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just got this film from the library; the strange face and bright colors really caught my eye. Little did I know that I was in store for a refreshingly original story where one never gets to see the protagonist. The subtle effect of the format of the film (we only see the people Thmoas sees on his videophone) slowly creates a palpable claustrophobic tension. Only sincere acting could make this script work and the actors deserve great credit, as well as the clear vision of the director. The animation sequences were also fun to watch. This film challenges typical notions of alienation in a modern world. It is a terrific exploration into the world of an agoraphobic in the not so distant future. Its great to know that a film like this can get made.
