Trivia

During her interviews on the DVD extras, Stoya consistently refers to the film's title as "Ederlezi Rising", Ederlezi Corporation being the sponsor of this voyage to Alpha Centauri. Presumably this was the working title before the film's release as "A. I. Rising". See more »

For people who like movies about space travel !
11 March 2019 | by leetheman-15701See all my reviews

A.I. Rising a.k.a. Ederlezi Rising is a low budget but really well-made scifier from Serbia focusing on the love story between a Slavic astronaut (does that make him a cosmonaut?) and a female cyborg sent to be by his side during the decade-long trip.

Obviously, the pilot starts using the cyborg for his own pleasure, but she's so advanced that he falls in love with her. After falling in love, the astronaut wants to liberate her from the operating system and turn her into a person but the results are way off the mark.

The film opens with an introductory text explaining that in 22nd Century capitalism sort of colonised the whole space and now socialism is back. The astronaut's trip is related to this issue as he is supposed to "install" an ideology in Alpha Centauri. I was intrigued by this ideological bend but film didn't develop that further even though it seems the filmmakers are interested in this-maybe they are saving that for a sequel?

Anyhow, after this political introduction the film turns into a quirky relationship drama and all those considerations if a person is able to love a machine and vice versa.

Direction is really elegant and arty. Photography is fantastic and this film looks like a major accomplishment for its crew. Stoya makes her mainstream debut in this film and all I can say is that she should change her day job and start doing serious cinema. She is talented and really persuasive as the cyborg chick.

I'm a sucker for space travel films and this one is a quirky addition to this genre. Its science is not most accurate but the heartbreaks it shows are real. I definitely recommend this film to people who like movies about space travel and sci fi in general but also to people who like to see offbeat relationship dramas.
