subtle, deft, atmospheric
20 July 2014 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

An ephemeral commentary on the future of biotechnology and dehumanization in the technocorporacy of the future. Subtle, deft, filled with impressions instead of direct explanations or reveals, bears repeated views to absorb its rich backdrop that constructs the scene and environment so quickly as required in such a short film.

Reminiscent of the atmospherics of Gus Van Sant's 'Gerry', do not look for a plot or an action packed vignette - rather, sit back and absorb the inherent poetry soaked in the bittersweet story of creation, love, loss and the cycle of life. A parable of hubris of the most immoral proportions employed to grasp an opportunity to re-humanize through the ultimate creation.

A brilliantly concise and masterfully restrained piece of multi-layered film making.
