Storyline

The orphan Adrián Vega has the ability of foreseeing the future and is adopted by the bookseller Samuel. He joins Samuel's group of clairvoyants called Utopia that protects people that will make a difference and Samuel teaches him how to control his power. Years later, Adrián fails in stopping a deranged Utopia member from exploding a car bomb and the wife and daughter of the police inspector Hervé are murdered and Hervé is blinded by the glass window. Adrián decides to leave the group, but Samuel convinces him to participate in his last assignment, saving the life of the school teacher Ángela that has joined an evil sect. Meanwhile Hervé is hired by Ángela's mother to brainwash her daughter and bring her back home. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Seeing and believing
9 January 2006 | by ricky-115See all my reviews

No, this works. The buildup is great, and the payoff pays off. What will it take for a future-seer to believe that they can change as well as see the future? Charming performances abound (the hired thug was the only grating note on that front for me), the visualisation has lots more to offer theme-wise than just smart jump-cutting and the sense of something big being at stake is palpable.

If a Utopian's job is to protect the interests of those who don't even know they need protection, then who will protect the interests of the protectors? Made me think of all those great sci fi writers of the 50s-70s who dealt with moral human questions in a futuristic context.
