Characters so emotionally dead it should have been a zombie movie
7 May 2019 | by garyg-94974See all my reviews

Typical European film made for critics not those looking for something to enjoy. Why are so many European films so emotionally dead? The sex here is dead as well if not twisted. No reason to see this if you are fan of sci-fi. The sci-fi elements are just a way to show the characters' alienation from reality.
