Storyline

In a nightmarish future, the wealthy elite maintain The Circle, a stratum of society that can use technology for regeneration, although it's unclear if a person is regenerated into reality or if this New Life is a cyber world. Thomas Steiner is regenerated, thanks to his mother, and it seems her goal is for him to lose his homosexuality. He awakens from his regeneration with memories of Kazo, a man he loved. He goes in search of him. But, was Kazo ever real? And what will mother make of this son who leaves the safety of The Circle in search of something else? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Engaging and interesting
28 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is a futuristic short about a man getting new and "improved" lease of life from cloning technology.

"Oedipe - N+1" is a surprising gem. It has great production, trendy sets and an interesting plot. Through "reinstantiation", a young man is brought back to life by a technology that resurrects the dead. The twist is that memories of the resurrected can be altered. Hence, his evil mother, whose conspiracy is disguised as 'motherly love", uses this technology to convert his son from gay to straight. I am sure a lot of people can sympathise with Thomas' situation. This interesting plot is further enhanced by mistrust, virtual reality and the high crime rate in the future world. This film is executed well, it engages me throughout the film. I am positively surprised by this short.
