Trivia

The interior of the huge dome where the futuristic congress takes place, during the animated sequence, is based on the Reich's Great Hall, a massive project made by Hitler and his Minister of Defense, Albert Speer. The building, if it had been built, would have been 1000 ft. tall and able to house 15,000 spectators, making it the largest interior space up to date. See more »

really good dystopia about modern days, but lacks a bit of focus
18 March 2014 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

It's a great allegory about the avatars of ourselves, on the social networks, on the smartphones and ipads. while, in the real world, people are getting poorer each day, wars are declared, people don't have water to survive. But this is mostly about identity. we sell it really easily, we want to be someone else, and someone can profit from that. Robin wright character is very well built, all her pain, her realization of being "old" for the job, the love for the kids.

The problem is that the dialogues are too expositive sometimes, at certain parts it can get confusing it's truth. but it talks about today, it wants to amaze us visually , and makes us think about all the virtual networking we're having now a days. we are selling ourselves each minute on the internet,

Really good stuff, highly recommended.
