The credited writer Armin Deutsch is the author of the much-anthologized short story "A Subway Named Mo(e)bius," first published in 1950 and set in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. The subway referred to in the story is now part of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (the "T"). See more »

Full Review on my blog max4movies: Moebius is a mystery thriller about a young mathematician who is sent to find a missing train in the Buenos Aires subway system. On a philosophical level, Moebius makes the statement that a system can expand infinitely within its own dimensions. This transhumanist question is explored through a young mathematician who searches the subway system of Buenos Aires for a seemingly missing train. The movie references the Moebius strip for explaining how a system can reach a higher order within itself, effectively stating that a network created by humankind can become too complex to be understood by the human mind. As with the visual style, the editing, and the acting, the movie is very consistent in this central theme and therefore makes a clever viewing, only partly weakened by the uneven pacing in the second third.
