Storyline

This movie is set in the year 2095, hence the presence of mutant humans and extraterrestrials. The main character is known as Jill. She is not human. When she is discovered by Dr. Elma Turner she is diagnosed as being the most interesting genetic test subject Turner has ever come across. Her organs are not in the right place, she has no memory and her internal biological age appears to be only three months old. Turner gives her a break, giving her an identity card and a place to stay, in exchange for Jill being her guinea-pig to work on and discover more about. Nicopol is a frozen prisoner who is due to be released a year after the film is set. There is a problem in the frozen prisoners' ward and several are thrown down to the ground(dying in the process), including Nicopol, but he lives and only loses a leg. There is a lot more to this story but I can't disclose it in this summary; I don't have the words. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

magical
17 November 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

alike other voters i found myself needing to register to vote on this movie. This movie deserves praise, an excellent blend of animation with reality, Comments i have heard from other people that have viewed this film, " its hard to tell who is a human character and who is not". The story is a believable, futuristic story combined with the mystery of mythology. The continuity is superb, holding the viewers gaze until the last moment. A story of love and hate, amnesia, unknown power, innate strength to fight for survival, with sparks flying between characters. The beautiful Linda Hardy plays the roll of Jill perfectly, captivating the audience from the first moment she hits the screen. Mysterious and mystical a magical journey into the future. I would love to see a sequel, and a prequel of this film.
