An Antidote to Hollywood pap
Delightfully disturbing examination of human fragility that questions sanity, compassion and self-absorption . The 'sci-fi' vehicle gives a wonderful scope for all the main characters to express their individual pecadillos whilst opening up more global issues . Plenty of humour and pathos and a total lack of schmaltzy sentimentality raise this above the regular propaganda and into a truly thought provoking piece.
Excellent acting , mood and score just add to a novel and well expressed plot.
A joy to watch.
