I liked it
5 March 2006 | by (Oporto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

I've just seen this movie in FantasPorto (Oporto International Film Festival) and it won the best script award and the Melíes d'Argent award for Fantasy Film. The action is set in the near future and as the Director/Author/Screenwriter (Roselyne Bosch) says it is not a Science Fiction movie but rather an anticipation, seeing the science portrayed in this movie is only a few steps away. The scenarios of the film are set in Portugal, in the Imaginarium (a centre for science discovery) and in the Ocenario (a sort of sea aquarium) and in other locations around the country. The acting is very good, especially Diogo Infante who plays an outstanding serial killer. Overall I recommend this movie, it's quite good.
