Anna Katharina Schwabroh,
A man wakes up deep inside a cave. Suffering amnesia, he has no recollection of how he came to be here or of what happened to the man whose body he finds beside him. Tailed by a mysterious creature, he must continue through this strange and fantastic world. Enclosed, Tolbiac has no other option to reach the surface than to use REZO ZERO, secret observing cells in this cemetery-like abandoned mine. He embarks upon this journey guided by the roots of a plant, leading the way and the main subject of attention of the REZO.Written by
There are 11 international teaser trailers for the film (African, Arabic, English, French, German, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish). Notably, each teaser version is not just a dub, but actually uses a different actress for the opening scene. The only exception being the French and English versions, which use the same actress.

a man wakes up deep in a cave, in what seems to be an abandoned and empty world. Covered in mud, he sets out trying to find where and who he is.
I do not want to include spoilers in my comment so I will keep it short. The reason for this is that the success of the film lies in the haunting atmosphere and the journey on which it takes the viewer more than in any actual plot. Indeed, the film is centred around one character and the viewer more or less watches events unfold from the character's viewpoint. The world first time director Frank Vestiel creates is truly haunting and very original, it is miles away from most of the clichés used to recreate a futuristic world. The atmosphere is eerie and dialogue is kept to a minimum. The soundtrack is absolutely beautiful. The plot is however a little unclear and some sequences are quite long, and they are the more oppressive as the viewer is plunged in darkness. But overall a very original film with very interesting camera work and haunting and beautiful visuals especially considering this is Vestiel's first full length feature with a limited budget at his disposal. Definitely one to watch on the big screen.
