After a group of people, who meet online, discover a bizarre graphic novel which seems to hold mysterious answers, they find themselves being tracked down by a merciless organization known merely as 'The Network'.
In a parallel present the artificial human has come into its own. Robots no longer have anything robot-like about them. New technology and advancements in the field of science have made it possible to manufacture a product - a kind of mechanized servant - that is so similar to a real human that it can often be considered a perfectly good substitute. The Human Robot (HUBOT) have also given rise to new problems and dilemmas. Thorny legal questions have increasingly started to occupy people's minds and are still waiting to be answered: Who is responsible for the actions of a hubot? Do hubots have some form of "hubot rights"? Should they be paid for their work? As an ever growing number of people form relationships with hubots, the boundaries between human and machine become blurred. When humans make copies of themselves, which are so close to the real thing they form emotional bonds, the questions arises - What does it really mean to be 'human'? Written by
The Asimov Restrictions on hubots is named for Sci Fi author and Biochemist Issac Asimov. Asimov's Three Laws on Robotics as mentioned in his novel series I, Robot governs how hubots are generally supposed to behave and interact among humans. See more »
I found it 'different' then other SF with 'androids'. Many clean spacious shots. Good cast / actors. Nice story, not all action, running, shooting, escaping, but 'intelligent' scenes. So, different, but in a very good way. I have not seen a Scandinavian production i liked so much, since i was very young, pippi long stockings.
An Oscar should go to the 'chinese girl' for best actress playing a non humanoid 'humanoid' i.m.o.
It has humor, suspense, good storyline, and i think if plugged well it might even be a small international success. The whole way of filming, locations, dialogs, all, top level story telling/filming/playing.
And perhaps even a glimpse of a real feature, we are now, busy creating these machines. Not as smart and strong as data in star trek, but very much like real humans.
