Storyline

In a typical morning just like any other, Alfred Kager wakes up, puts on his clothes and prepares to go to work at the copy shop. There, while making one copy after another, he unknowingly photocopies the palm of his hand, and as if by magic, the mysterious machine starts generating duplicates of himself and his surroundings, as well as random scenes of previous events. The machine is unstoppable and the consequences of this chain reaction, utterly unforeseen. Can Alfred put an end to this nightmare before the world is consumed by "Alfred"? Written by Nick Riganas

fascinating
11 January 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is difficult to say why. but it is it - a fascinating movie. for story and for technical manner to make it. for references to the early history of cinema and to Franz Kafka literary universe. for the brilliant music and for the admirable idea. for acting and for the great effort to create a parable about the essence of film, society and ordinary fears. it could have many interpretations. but important is its simplicity. and the wise way to transform in a film who impress in deep sense. because it has the art to become yours story. a warning. a trip in memories and black utopia. to remind the vulnerability front to technique. or to remind the stereotypes who are bones and muscles and skin of our lives. it is easy to define it as masterpiece. for reasons who are not from artistic area.
