a mysterious box
7 July 2014 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

This is an exciting and thrilling Science Fiction movie.The location is maybe Russia, but I

do not know when it is.It seems to be the far distant future.In the movie, the technology has developed and humans and robots live together.The robots seems to have human- mind.One robot serves a man. The strange gift for his owner from a guest is the key thing of this movie.The gift seems to have special power.The characters in the movie try to get this special gift,but the same things happen to everyone who gets this box.Is this coincidence?The answer to this question is not known to anyone, and I cannot tell what happens to them.In the last scene,a young boy finds the gift.I think that everyone watching this movie want to tell him not to pick up the box.It is thrilling and exciting movie and also this movie makes us how technologies are.
