Storyline

A messed-up astronaut runs from the deadly black fog that slowly covers everything. He seems to have only a short memory but he needs to find a way out. We repeatedly follow him through different strange scenes where he seems to meet the same people on an on again, but each time they are different and the stories they tell seem to differ as well. The film focuses on a universal problem solving situation rather than on classic linear storytelling. Written by Anonymous

A multi level game of puzzle
10 May 2012 | by dr-damien-ekhartSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Sci-Fi London festival. I went with a friend and we had no idea about what we're going to see. We went to see a Hungarian 'arthouse' sci-fi but ended up seeing the most strange and unlikely movie we've ever been to. It was advertised as a computer generated movie but for a couple minutes I thought the shots were actually live action. The hand-held camera simulation certainly adds to the illusion. There are of course a couple of shots where that illusion of reality disappears but for about half an hour you really have to wonder if the movie is "real" or computer generated. It certainly adds to the theme which develops around the concept of a multi-level or multi-verse virtual reality. It is not like like 'Matrix' however. The story revolves around an astronaut trying to find his way out of a messy virtual reality game but there is no way I can describe the story properly because the structure of the storytelling is truly weird. I can only compare it to films like 'Pulp Fiction' or 'Primer' but I can also tell you that it's a lot more complicated than anything that comes to my mind. For me was really hard puzzle to solve. And it is not just a puzzle where you can put the parts together and come up with the one and only solution because the movie has an open ending. This I think makes it only suitable for those who can live without a big moment or a final resolution. But if you're really into finding solutions for nearly unsolvable problems then this movie is for you. I guess knowing a bit about the Church-Turing thesis also helps understanding what's going on. I liked the zen-like soundscapes and the Commodore 64 generated music which reminded me of the '80s. The movie also also operates with references to a number of famous science fiction movies so if you're a film fan I'm sure you'll like this one.
