A gray and dystopic future, evil megacorp taking over the world and the people in it - OK, that part's been done. 'Metropia' stands out for doing it brilliantly. It's a lot more than that, though.

Animation has explored the super-realistic, with just enough success that the discrepancies become especially jarring. This goes farther, well into the surreal. That allows for exaggerations of faces and figures, wide-eyed blankness and evil scowls that wouldn't be phyiscally possible for human actors. And, despite great advances in computer-aided post-production, animators can build their worlds from the ground up in the image they want, with no need to retrofit them into scraps of reality. This movie really does use animation in a novel and very distinctive way.

Very enjoyable in many ways. Certainly not one for the kiddies, it scarcely qualifies as as "adult" movie - but body-shy viewers might have trouble with brief- and semi-nudity.

Metropia is a 2009 Swedish production that has flown completely under-the-radar, despite fascinating and innovative animation that accompanies the pretty basic science-fiction storyline. I only came upon it by searching for Vincent Gallo films on Netflix. The availability of Metropia is a story itself. You can get the DVD or stream from Netflix, you can purchase a copy of the DVD on Amazon, and yet Wikipedia claims that this film will be released in North America by Paramount Pictures in 2012. Hopefully this last piece of information is true as it might garner this film more exposure.

The plot is pretty standard sci-fi fare. The story takes place in Europe, 2024; the world is running out of oil and Europe's underground subways have been connected into one large underground tunnel called The Metro. Roger (Vincent Gallo) is a lugubrious call-center worker, paranoid about using the Metro, who begins hearing a voice (belonging to Alexander Skarsgård) in his head. Soon the tries to turn Roger against his girlfriend Anna and his paranoia continues growing. After seeing the model whose face graces the bottle of dandruff shampoo he uses, Roger follows her. The woman's name is Nina (voiced by Juliette Lewis) and his involvement with her gets him entangled in a conspiracy involving the Trexx Corporation and its overlord Ivan Bahn (nightmarishly voiced by Udo Kier).

Mind-control, paranoia, technology, dystopian world, muted colors, etc. Standard sci-fi stuff, but delivered with a European flavor. The story is intriguing but slow-moving, requiring patience from the viewer. It only runs 80 minutes, but if you're not ready to invest yourself into the film than steer clear until you are.

I watched this movie tonight because it seemed like an interesting pick on my prime movies. The animation was very distracting and some of the coloring in the movie was too dark. The voices are also sometimes too quiet....with that being said, I had to turn up the volume on my tv to hear it clearly...but then was startled several times when the soundtrack was much louder.

Overall, the concept of the movie was good. Through the use of shampoo, the villain uses hair follicles to act as an antenna to hear thoughts and see what citizens are doing. Each citizen is under mind control because they are assigned a worker to tell them what to do via thoughts. The main character...a conspiracy searcher...discovers this plot through the daughter of villain's association. Together, they plan to foil the plan by blowing up the building where the mind-control workers are. Once accomplished, the plot leaves more to be desired when it's announced that the daughter is now in charge of the corporation....questioning if that was the plan all along?

I'm sure that this is an interesting movie, except that the dialogue in the soundtrack has been recorded many levels lower than the general background sound level in the movie. I hate movies like this where the soundtrack has not been normalized. With both the Windows volume at max, Amazon Unbox volume at max and my headphone's volume at max, the dialogue was barely discernible, although the general background sound of the movie was then too loud. I don't understand why motion picture sound engineers do this. At least Amazon could have normalized the soundtrack levels before offering this movie for download.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie. The animation is unlike anything I've ever seen, but I really enjoyed it. I found the story to be interesting. The voice acting is terrific. All in all, a good picture. Definitely unique.

This is is gray and bleak as a movie can be. It's unlike any movie I've seen, yet at the same time it pays careful and respectful homage to all the predecessors. Metropolis, 1984, Alphaville, Clockwork Orange and Brazil come quickly to mind. as well as episodes of The Twilight Zone. There are many others I've seen and did not mention, and perhaps yet more that I have not seen, so other reviewers, please call them out.

The art direction is superb. The combination of techniques that are used to pull together the production is astounding. The characters have a great deal of psychological depth and are beautifully drawn, (in both senses). And it's very emotive at the same time. To dismiss it as an animation is ignorant.

Then I'll add my unnatural obsession with Juliette Lewis, and it's a win for me.
