Storyline

Rand, Winston, and Johnson have a small tech startup company in the Bay Area that's developing a artificially-lived computer character, Koy Koy the bird, who can hear and see and interact with the user. Koy Koy gets placed in a kids schoolroom for testing, and Rand develops a relationship with one of the teachers, Sarah. Rand learns that his scientific understanding of human mating isn't necessarily a roadmap for the real thing. Written by Martin Lewison <dr@martinlewison.com>

Great experience
29 April 2004 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the unfolding of these characters, all of which have their own challenges.

The interplay between the programmers is especially witty. Bruno Campos is very funny and Grundy plays a great straight man.

Great visual portrayal of San Francisco.

Sarah has a genuineness about her that reflects reality, not stereotypes or cliches.

I look forward to future works by Decena and Breitbach and they continue to evolve as filmakers.

The Sundance process is one that needs to be supported and I hope to see the Sundance Film Series be a regular thing.
