Excellent movie!
14 August 2010 | by (Wonderland) – See all my reviews

This is a surprisingly very good movie that lets the spectator submerge in the internal world of main character, Xenia. Especially the (dis)balance between the search of self-fulfillment and the surrounding anti-utopian environment of future Netherlands re-shaped according to Chinese standards (yes, its somewhere towards the end of the movie where the huge school class of Xenia is taught Chinese on a large scale). Apparently this standard took over after the "flood" which is hinted at by the brother of Xenia, who is probably the only person she really can talk to besides the old lady "guide" that she regularly visits on the "island".

While watching the movie I have strongly felt a feeling I also get when watching Tarkovsky's Stalker (the depiction of the nature of the Netherlands is superb) and when reading anti-utopia like 1984, Brave New World and We (by Zamyatin).
