In the futuristic city of Vanille, with properly tuned ImmerSyst Eyes & Ears the world can look and sound like a paradise.

Desperate to avoid facing his own traumatic reality, the man must venture outside to find a replacement, into a city where violence and danger lurk beneath a skim of beautiful illusion.

Rather Confusing
19 June 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a love story about a father and son. But it goes beyond that. We have the invention and training of an artificial intelligence, but more has been added. Both men in this film (what I mean is in their respective settings) live in societies where evil prevails most of the time. This is clever, but it is lacking in enough of a foundation for the viewer to understand.
