Anna Katharina Schwabroh,
Deep space, at the edge of the galaxy. The future. A new prisoner arrives on top security prison ship and psychiatric research unit Dante 01. Sole survivor of an encounter with an alien force beyond imagining, Saint Georges is a man possessed by inner demons, caught up in the battle to control the monstrous power within him. It's a power that will infect the other highly dangerous occupants of Dante 01, gaolors and prisoners alike, unleashing a violent rebellion that turns this terrifying, labyrinthine world upside down. In the otherworldly hell of the ship's depths, through danger and redemption, each must journey to his very limits... each must confront his own Dragon. Written by
There are some gaps in story cohesion, but I liked this film, give it credit where it's due
This film may not be for everyone, but for those who like to venture a bit outside the box, and then some, this may be just your cup of tea.
There are some beautiful and intriguing graphics, but this is not a big blazing special effects sort of film. That's not the point here (refreshingly so, I might add).
Of course, I'm not going to describe the ending, except to say there are multiple potential interpretations, which may (or may not) have been by initial intentional design, but the end result does leave this open ended aspect to the story.
But the story itself is interesting . . .
The orbiting prison space station and its odd collection of prisoners and its technical / scientific crew (I'll let the viewer decide which is more dysfunctional / insane / evil).
Then comes the mysterious new prisoner arrival . . .
accompanied by the amazingly beautiful and evil quasi corporate scientist with her experimental but potentially profitable nano-inoculations and . . .
It's at this point things quickly get off to an evermore darkish chain of events.
As others have noted, there are some gaps in the evolving story . . . perhaps due to budget and deadline limitations, which I can sympathize with.
Given that, I still give this production a lot of credit for an ambitious and interesting attempt at this sort of genre' within the scifi artform.
