Storyline

Synopsis Henry and Jack are two famous and talented pianists: they are rivals and try to outdo each other in the various music events where they regularly compete. They have known each other since their days at the music academy and developed a very strong friendship. They met Lana there and Jack had an affair with her then. This friendship deteriorated along the years and Lana left Jack for Henry. Jack's resentment towards Henry will increase even further when he realizes that although his talent as a pianist is as great a talent as Henry's, he always ended up second... behind Henry. Simultaneously, Lana slowly realized that the only thing Henry cares about is his job. When she gets pregnant, he tells her he doesn't want the child and she leaves him, taking refuge with Jack who thus finds a way to get back at Henry. From that point, the former friends will clash with no mercy, from contest to contest until the day a domestic robot, GLENN, enters their lives. GLENN will jeopardize ... Written by Marc Goldstein

A true gem for the perceptive!!!

The pure genius of this movie is overlooked perhaps to its understated presentation. But this is an amazingly well written film! At its heart is an exploration of consciousness and memory. Although jaded critics seem to have give this title an unworthy cursory view, I truly believe that this film will stand the test of time as a cult classic, despite the current trend of surface-level criticism.

True Science Fiction fans, writers, musicians and thinkers with all find something of value here to ponder. From my perspective, the human characters are a counterpoint to the real central figure of the film, Glenn, and his inquiry into what it means to be human in comparison to himself.

I will say no more, other than serious thinkers give this a second look. This is a true gem!
