GPS is not expected to work properly underground as it requires clear signal from the satellites. Moreover, you would require signals from different satellites to triangulate a precise position (such the ones shown in the movie) which is not plausible underground. See more »
I do love dystopian films. They just hit the right spot in my brain, but only if they are done right. This, was done right.
With believable characters, and a proper amount of back story, this film deals with how humans cope with normal life when something as basic as stepping outside for breath of fresh air becomes impossible.
It doesn't try to be anything overly amazing, but revolves around Marc and his struggle to reunite with his love, Julia, in an unstable world. As they say, it's not the destination - it's the journey. That applies quite well here.
For those afraid of subtitled films, the dialog is sparse enough - do not pass this one by for that reason.
