Bill wakes up from a coma in a hospital ward, raving about tissue regeneration experiments, final injections, organ transplants and having been cryogenically frozen. Battling flashbacks of his father's death and a car crash, occasional hallucinations and fits of rage he tries to piece together his own history with the help of Ann, a lonely medical psychologist sent in to evaluate whether he should be released. In their confrontational, sexually-charged sessions, Bill flip-flops between pitch-perfect self-diagnoses and his paranoid bio-tech fantasies, but slowly begins to heal. But things are not what they seem. Written by

At last! I have been waiting for so long to see something different from the usual junk Hollywood dumps on Europe. Everything with this movie reminds me of the Danish dogma movies, where the plot and storyline are actually MORE important than the special effects. (And maybe that's why this movie got so many 1s as well as 10s; the intellectual working class normally wants more shooting and car-chases in their movies :))
I'm not going to spoil anything, so I just want to say that the tension between Bill and Ann keeps this film moving as wonderfully as Bill's recollection of his past and his returning suspiciousness that he's going to be killed.
The only minus for my own part, is that the film music could be better. If I could decide, it would have been more like the music in «The Man Who Wasn't There», but the guitar-music was nice anyhow.
