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>

Rand: You cold?
Sarah McCaulley: No, what are you feeling? Are you all squishy inside or is this just some phermones thing that's kicking in?
Rand: Well it's obviously your pheromones...
Sarah McCaulley: My pheromones?
Rand: Yeah, your epocrine glads produce most of them. I sense them through smell. Especially when we kiss.
Sarah McCaulley: What else are you feeling?
Rand: Biologically, my ribonasal organ and my hypothalamas are kicking in the hormones right now.
Sarah McCaulley: What hormones?

pretty film with sweet, sweet "chemistry"
4 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Though the premise could've been enough to make Dopamine seem cold and heartless.. the "chemistry" between the romantic leads saved the day.. Sarah & Rand seemed wonderfully suited to one another. I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet film.. it was beautifully shot, the juxtaposition between the natural, human & computer worlds gave the premise a wonderful tableau to set upon.. I would've liked to have seen more of Rand's father and less of Rand's partners but otherwise, I thought this was a wonderful first from Decena and look forward to seeing what's next.
