Storyline

The McBee family has erected a government over a future 'colony', that looks like a run-down Paris divided into sectors by the Berlin Wall. All male family members suffer from a mysterious disease and are in urgent need of organ transplants. The perfect donor, Tykho Moon, probably has been killed in a fire, but according to rumours he's still alive. Although assassins stalk the family members, the McBees start a hunt for Tykho. Trying to escape the dragnet, Alex, a sculptor, meets Lena, a killer posing as a whore. Written by Armin Ortmann <armin@sfb288.math.tu-berlin.de>

Comic with real life actors
1 August 2001 | by leemhuisSee all my reviews

This film is great, basicly being a comic-strip film with real life actors. The world it depicts is strange: It is not fantasy-like, and not science-fiction like. It's more like the sad Eastern Europe after the cold war. And also the behaviour of the actors is strange, unhuman. Like in comicstrips
