Storyline

After a nuclear attack, seven dwellers of an apartment building seek refugee in a bunker in the basement of the building where the super, Mickey, lives. He rations water and supplies among the group formed by Eva and her boyfriend Sam; the gays Bobby and Josh and his brother Adrien; Marilyn and her daughter Wendi; and Delvin. When five invaders break into their shelter wearing protective clothing and breathing apparatuses, they abduct Wendi but the survivors succeed in killing two of the men. Josh wears the only clothing that was not damaged and discovers a strange research center where he finds Wendi contained in some kind of stasis device along with other children apparently collected by the unknown men in suits. He is discovered and ends up shoots at three men and returns to the shelter. Soon the group learns that the invaders have welded their access door from outside and they are trapped inside the bunker. Marilyn and Sam get crazy and the tense situation and the lack of water ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This movie keeps you thinking for weeks
22 January 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The whole post-apocalyptic genre has been overused, and you rarely see something new in this kind of movies. I claim that this movie adds a whole new level to the genre, and hasn't been based on the same script as many other movies has.

If you only want to watch splatter and skin, screw you. This is for people who care more about the feelings a movie express.

This movie has so many symbolic levels, and small hidden political meanings and messages. Many small details has been put in, to leave the attentive watcher wondering "what the ...?". Questions like "Who bombed USA?" and "why would that person do that?" are the most simple questions in this film, but still takes a lot of thinking to make out.

The characters is very realistic, and due to the way Xavier Gens has directed the movie, the characters goes through a BIG transformation. There's no sexy stupid blondes who wander around topless throughout the movie, screaming - it's not a teen movie!

I saw this movie alone with high level of sound, and this movie sucked me in completely. The very sensitive soundtrack keeps the edge of tension, as the plot twists and turns, and in no way follows the mainstream story lines. The next day i had to show it to my wife. Now, after a few weeks, i still wanna watch it again, and pay more attention to small details that makes you wonder.

This movie is highly recommendable (not for the faint-hearted though)! It will change your way of thinking!
