Those guys are geniuses, 5 July 2005
Author: kurthectic from France

"One more time", I'm gonna try to spread my love for this movie.

This film is magical, the soundtrack is wonderful, you get the feeling you're lifted up in the air, it's like you're "aerodynamic".

The story might seem quite simple, basically it's a "digital love" story where the hero will have to be "harder, better, faster, stronger" in order to rescue the woman of her dream and her music band (the "Crescendolls") from an evil record producer.

The animation by Leiji Matsumoto is just so beautiful; for instance, the "nightvision" you get of the town on Earth (probably inspired by Tokyo) is breathtaking.

But, the real "superheroes" of this movie are the Daft Punk. These guys understood that a good music could lead to an "high life", they know how to move us, how to reveal "something about us". Let them take you on this space journey, whether it's on the "voyager" shuttle or not, you'll find it "veridis quo". It's a "short circuit" (only 68 min, the length of the "Discovery" album) but in the end, when you find "face to face" with yourself, you can only feel like you would want some more, like it could never have been "too long".
