A seemingly interesting idea whose execution is deeply flawed

This is one of the films i have chosen to see from FEST 18 in Belgrade. The idea of this movie seemed interesting to me, thus making my decision to see it.

'Involution', an english language European film directed by a Russian director/cinematographer Pavel Khvaleev, backed up by German production, unfolds an apocalyptic story where the entire world turns back on Darwin's theory on Evolution. The main leads, Hamming and Liv, a couple witnessing their future turn on its head and must save themselves from this apocalypse.

Honestly, i thought it wasn't that bad, yet it could've been done a lot better. It is not an easy task to make a challenging movie under a tight budget. The acting is rather cheesy, forced and cartoonish (especially the Cain character). The plot in some parts did not make any sense. However, the cinematography is absolutely stunning, especially in the dream sequences.

I would give this movie 5/10. Again, it wasn't bad but it wasn't great. It could've done better.
