about freedom
11 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

...or against the supremacy of machines. technically impeccable, it is one of films who use, in inspired manner, an idea who seems be so familiar. and this is its basic virtue - to propose a coherent story escaping from the circle of specific genre. because it is a story about the force of vulnerability. about values, heroism and a future of humanity who sounds not real unrealistic. a film about courage and honor. reminding great Sci. Fi series. so, little more than a good short film.
