In the near future, oil reserves are nearly depleted and Europe is connected by series of underground tunnels. While navigating these tunnels, Roger hears voices, one in particular. Seeking a way to rid himself of the voice only leads Roger deeper into a bizarre conspiracy of control - mind and body.Written by

I do love dystopia movies, but they must be stylish, intelligent and powerful. This movie is only stylish and not in great manner. It is slow, visually and thematically very depressing. This could be acceptable - think "1984" style visuals.
Unfortunately the plot is very stupid and bizarre. I mean - it has no sense, even remotely. There is a bit of pro-multi-culti propaganda, a bit of economical nonsense and a whole lot of total mind control nonsense. The movie never tries to explain anything, it actually only builds one layer of depression over another. It leads to nowhere, you will never know why the persons are doing what they are doing.
In the end it is way too boring to watch and its message is too unclear. You know, if you want to make good dystopia movie, you should something important to say - like in Blade Runner or Soylent Green. It is not enough to make story about "how big corporations are bad" and "everyone has boring job" and "everyone wears gray clothes" to make even acceptable movie.
