A hugely talented but socially isolated computer operator is tasked by Management to prove the Zero Theorem: that the universe ends as nothing, rendering life meaningless. But meaning is what he already craves.
Pre-teen Jeliza-Rose's parents are hopeless drug addicts. When pa, rocker Noah, finds ma's OD'd, he fears to be charged with homicide and takes Jeliza along to his ma's place, in a desolate country region. With Noah passed out, the girl mentally transfers to a fantasy world she and her doll heads enter magically. Jeliza's adventures also star the crazy locals, notably Dell, and Dell's grown but intellectually disabled brother Dickens. Written by
This movie wasn't made to entertain with sex, drugs violence and explosions, it was made to let you experience the world and all these aspects from another perspective, A child's perspective, the trick is not to analyze anything in this film but to let it flow and become part of it, The acting is perfect, and it, the cinematography, music and locations manage to take you to a place you could never imagine, not because it is outrages or extreme in anyway. It's simply a step sideways. Trying to find a meaning to the events in the film is pointless, as the meaning is right there in front of you.. the reason you will want to rationalise an event or action is only because you're not happy with the reason you're given as it doesn't fit into your vision of how the world should work.
This is a truly beautiful film... if you don't like it the first time watch it again, if you still don't like it you might as well go and watch "snakes on a plane"
