"Paris 2054. Live forever or die trying.
"In 2054, Paris is a labyrinth where all movement is monitored and recorded. Casting a shadow over everything is the city's largest company, Avalon, which insinuates itself into every aspect of contemporary life to sell its primary export -- youth and beauty. In this world of stark contrasts and rigid laws the populace is kept in line and accounted for.
Great visuals, great story!
I just came back from a pre-release viewing of this excellent sci-fi
film noire. It's style is definitively unique and very well made. It is
filmed with actual actors, but transformed into a black and white
comic-strip style you have never seen before. It goes one step further
than Sin City, and it does it well. It's a successful combination of
french comic and movie cultures. The story and mood remind of Blade
Runner, and if you liked that one you will surely like this one, too.
The storyline is intelligent, never boring and has some nice little
twists. This film is a must-see for any cinephile except perhaps those
who absolutely don't like sci-fi or b&w.
