Storyline

The film is set in a terrorizing world of the future, where technology commands the movements of individuals, supervised by the doctors, carrying out a program to improve the human race. Thus, instead of doctors creating a monster, the monsters are already there as the species of the future - but one of them is suspected by the doctors of being a human being. That is Golem in reverse. Written by Polish Cinema Database <http://info.fuw.edu.pl/Filmy/>

Disappointing
2 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

I just saw Golem which was part of the Sci-Fi London 2010 line-up. It was a total disappointment.

The first review explains it as "Kafkaesque claustrophobia meets surrealism in a sci-fi retelling". What this really means is a movie that will make no sense, is full of absurd dialogue and situations and will end up wasting 92 minutes of your life.

Everyone in the film acted like morons, so the attempt by the Government to create super humans appears to have failed miserably.

As Sci-Fi it failed, and as social commentary; the message seems to have been lost in the telling.
