This is a gloomy drama, in the line of the original "Blade Runner", with a mutant (or qeda, the quantum entangled divided agent of the title) that falls in love with the past of its model: the qedas are replicas of humans, with similar characteristics, that fulfill missions traveling through time. And this one in particular refuses to return to the future (or the present time of the film), hypnotized by that "before" that it discovers. "QEDA" lacks the shiny surfaces of the Ridley Scott film, in which rottenness was glamourous and death was a poet. Without the lyricism that turned Scott's opus into a classic, "QEDA" is a small, intimate science fiction film, but never worthless, that opts for a more realistic sense of hopelessness in the fantasy frame of the story. Its ability to move us and the drama forward makes the result attractive and interesting in the end.
