Renaissance

Christian Volkman, France, United Kingdom and Luxembourg, 2006, 105, OVSS.

In 2054, Ilona, a scientist from a pharmaceutical company, mysteriously disappears. Karas, a police officer on the outer limits of the law and specialising in impossible operations, goes looking for her. Immediately, he realises that he is involved in a case that threatens the fate of humankind. This stop motion animation reminds us of the first expressionist films with its extreme play of lights, shadows and perspectives, its comic book aesthetics (Frank Miller, Alan Moore, etc.) and its similarities to dystopias like Blade Runner.
