Storyline

On a journey to witness the final performance of a mythical musician thought long dead, a group of misfits navigate the barren terrain of a dystopian future, while constantly connected to the nihilistic DJ of radio station FNTN / Fonotune. Influenced by Japanese cinema, graphic design and Manga Comics, Fonotune: An Electric Fairytale is a film about strange encounters, lost connections and, maybe, the end of the world!

A truly different movie experience
16 May 2019 | by samwinter-81090See all my reviews

I recently had the opportunity to view Fonotune at the Cinetopia Film Festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the film's American premiere. Before it began, a message from the director played, who suggested for us to "let the movie wash over you". Though I didn't initially understand what this meant, the director's intent became clear as the showing began. With minimal dialogue or obvious plot, the movie was propelled by interesting characters and environments, a stellar soundtrack, and cinematography that was often completely breathtaking. It was like watching a painting, an experience truly unlike any other film I have ever watched. The world building was monumental, and even more impressive due to how minimalistically everything was shown. The world was left vague, but in a way that piqued my interest. I have been thinking about the film's environment since I left the theater last night. Also, the soundtrack was one of the best that I have heard. Everything just looked and sounded really cool. I have not had an experience like Fonotune before in theaters, and I would definitely recommend that anyone who is able to should check it out.
