A hugely talented but socially isolated computer operator is tasked by Management to prove the Zero Theorem: that the universe ends as nothing, rendering life meaningless. But meaning is what he already craves. Written by
Cinematographer Nicola Pecorini decided to shoot on film rather than digitally: "Both Terry and I were convinced that the best way to capture the image was on film. It gives you the latitude; it gives you the greatest palette to work with." The 35mm negative was processed and digitized overnight by Kodak Cinelabs Romania located nearby in the center of Bucharest. Digital rushes were available to view in the morning. See more »

I love his movies. Brazil, Bandits, Munchhausen. They represent wonderful memories from my childhood. These are special movies. Not that I don't like the 12 Monkeys and the others, I love them. But those are special. Dream injections in VHS format they were.
The Zero Theorem? I really liked it. It felt like one of the special ones. Very little CGI, beautiful sets, great actors, crooked angles and a compelling story. I think most people will relate to the main character and his very explicit dilemmas. It is a satire of the world we live in today, as Brazil was back in the 80's. In many aspects they are very similar.
If you are a fan, watch it. You'll not be disappointed.
