To my wife, this my 2001 moment but instead of being pissed off, I am - Thrilled.

Thought provoking... but give us answers please
18 May 2018 | by nickherbert-69558See all my reviews

Not a film I would normally watch but on thought I'd give it a go.

It is a film of few words but the setting and atmosphere easily make up for it and it makes the setting more believable.

There are a few annoyances like, why they have forgotten the names of things and have made their own, but as we don't know how far in the future this is set (not that far judging by how well kept the turbines are though).

The story line is also pretty sparse but overall the film is oddly addictive and I found myself having to keep watching to see where the film went - I am normally very intolerant of films so for it to keep my attention is a positive.

It is well worth a watch as it is very thought provoking. But as another reviewer has rightly said, it gives you not a single answer.
