When Helena is learning to use chopsticks with Alex, the outdoor cafe they are at is an homage to the scene in Blade Runner, when Deckard(Ford) is having noodles. Raining, outside cafe, night, a lot of functional neon as lighting. The director even threw in a clear umbrella that was the predominant umbrella used in Blase Runner. See more »
SPOILER: Behind the guise of sci-fi and romance, this movie is a horror of sorts, which is what I experienced when the plot twist was revealed. This raises many ethical questions which I find to be the very essence of the story. I valued this more for the discussions and debates it sparked than for the plot of effects. The theme felt very similar to the Netflix Brazilian Portuguese series 3% (which I absolutely loved). The romance was the driving force for the plot, but it felt very tacked on and slightly shallow. It did, however, make me wonder about the validity and depth of Helena's love when she fell in love with Alex simply because he was the only option.
I'd recommend this to anyone looking for something for their brain to chew on.
