A bit pretentious, a bit obvious, overlong, even at 74 minutes (this would have been a
brilliant 40 minute short), but still full of arresting images and surprisingly emotional moments.

Influenced heavily by Kubrick, Antonioni and most of the great 60s and 70s visualists, this
is a wordless film about two robots who want to become human. The action is minimal.
The opening drive through the desert alone takes a good 15 minutes.

But it's wonderfully shot, and the use of eclectic source music as score (Brian Eno, Curtis
Mayfield, etc) is interesting, if sometimes a little too self-conscious or intrusive.

I doubt there are more layers to be found on repeated viewings, I think it is what it is:
an experimental film more full of image than story or ideas. A 74 minute, interesting rock video.

But every time I'd head toward terminally bored, an image or feeling would reel me back in...

5.0 out of 5 stars They've Done It Again, Those Marvellous Robots. October 17, 2007
Perhaps the best film by a french electronic duo about robots attempting to gain an ersatz humanity in a world devoid of people.
