Disturbing....sort of like Pinocchio for the 21st century.
12 March 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I have no idea what director David Cage is planning on doing with "Kara". Perhaps it's meant as an initial cut-scene for an upcoming video game (which would be pretty exciting) or maybe it's just a short film showing what sort of stuff he can do. All I know is that I found this on the internet and it was very disturbing--and in a good way.

The film is obviously done using CGI. It follows the creation of a cybernetic woman who is supposed to be a combination maid/sex toy/cook. As she's begin assembled, a voice gives her instructions. However, somewhere along the line, the cyborg begins to think for herself and becomes aware--sort of like when Pinocchio becomes a real boy. It's profoundly disturbing when she becomes 'alive' and I think this is when this short really comes into it own. It nearly made me cry--and it is simple, yet brilliant. Well worth seeing--I just want to know exactly what they are planning on doing with it.
