Storyline

Seeking a new laboratory to pursue his controversial genetic research, Dr Geoff Burton takes up a position at the world-renowned Institute for Molecular Cell Biology & Genetics in wintry Dresden, Germany. His contribution to their most top-secret project - a human regeneration gene - has the potential to make something miraculous out of a personal tragedy that has haunted him for years. But when he uncovers a conspiracy amongst his colleagues, he finds instead something quite different: a terrifying new virus, with potentially devastating consequences for humanity - and for Geoff, who is not only its first victim, but its unwitting source.

Quotes

Jarek Novak: You know, mosquitoes, bed bugs, fleas, ticks - they all carry disease, yes? But instead of spreading sickness, why not change the formula. Make them carry genetically modified viruses? Anti-genes to our own plan. Imagine using this in the Third World; in Africa. They're going to be bitten anyway. Why not let them catch the "malaria vaccine", instead?
Geoffrey Burton: Hmm. But then you would first have to invent a "malaria vaccine", right?
Jarek Novak: You don't think it's possible?
Geoffrey Burton: I didn't say that.

Science Fiction Thriller_ Set in Germany- An American genetics researcher...
25 August 2013 | by (S. California) – See all my reviews

Science Fiction Thriller_ Set in Germany- An American genetics researcher is confronted with the dangers and ethical dilemmas of advanced genetics research; from risking human lives to balancing the need for human welfare/discovery against the ethical dilemmas of researching on mice and men.

This movie excels in its genre for abiding to science. The science of this story is more cutting edge than it is theoretical.

The Movie introduces the viewer to an unexplored setting, a modern research laboratory. Any one who has been to one in the quiet of night (good labs are open 24h/7d) knows the director didn't have to invent the creepy feeling you get crawling through the loud yet quiet architecture that yields no familiarity even to seasoned laboratory scientists.

Eccentric characters exist in the movie but none were unrealistic (I've met enough strange scientists to confirm this.)

Having been personally acquainted with top tier research labs (City of Hope, University of Arizona, and Stanford) I must commend this movie for being the first to ever accurately depict the look and feel of a high level research lab.

It was, at times: Reminiscent, Sad, Sexy, Scary, and Thrilling. A great Surprise.

*I must comment on the above review by- ordinary review. Mice, by there nature, are difficult to handle and pursue; even when you're a "top-notch scientist" & (especially outside a controlled lab environment). Secondly, there was no "vision of industrial Germany" commercial labs in California or Washington are similar and reside in the same type of semi-remote location approximately 30 minutes range of a downtown center.
