Very sharp, visually stunning, subtly stylized futuristic Crime Thriller... Blu-ray: Beautiful A:9 V:10
14 March 2014 | by (Sunny Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was quite entertaining. The visuals and look of the film were quite nice...

When the French get it right, NO ONE can do a film like this better (1982's 'DIVA' anyone...?) What made this film SO very effective was not only it's technical brilliance, excellent writing and story line, but also that the set design was amazing. Any Sci Fi elements were very subtle and not overwhelming. It comes across more as a SLIGHTLY futuristic Crime Thriller. Nothing overt or heavy handed; this is definitely NO STAR TREK or STAR WARS (although I very much DO appreciate those kinds of 'heavier' Sci Fi too...) Whenever Sci Fi elements are used, they are very understated and well integrated into the overall design and concept of the story.

I REALLY liked the tone and look of this film; and I'm NOT one much really for French films per se : ) Most of them, especially older Classic ones, I find deliberately vague and pretentious for the most part. But this one had EVERYTHING nicely and tightly arranged and was put together in such a way so that after seeing it, you come away feeling that you just watched a DAMN good film!

I also very much enjoyed the sound used in the movie. Nice touches in the background, especially the songs used during the sequences showing the various floors of the medical facility and during the virtual operation were quite effective.

There really isn't much more to add except that if you don't mind reading subtitles and you like a very clever, well thought out and intriguing Crime Thriller, and you appreciate nice set design, then you should by all means find this film very fun and entertaining.
