A masterpiece!
16 August 2005 | by rstreiblSee all my reviews

It is long ago since I saw this film on TV. It is about time, to show it again or to produce a DVD! But I still remember the excellence of the actors presented in a innovative architecture of cells made of glass. Just looking on the growing sceneries of (video)surveillance in all area of our society this film is absolutely up-to-date and worth seeing. It is based on the book of Jewgenj Samjatin, written about 1920 (but never published in his homeland!), which seems to have inspired also Aldous Huxley ("Brave new world") and George Orwell ("1984"). Conclusion: A German-TV-Production of its best! It is a pity, that only few know that film. This has to change!
