Italy, 2011, 102 min, Italian language, English subtitlesAn agency takes on an unstoppable virus that is responsible for the spiritual destruction of mankind. To give the right impulses back to humanity, the survivors of the virus make contact with another world to create a new, virus-resistant, human being.The first part tells the story of the virus and the end of the world in a film noir/silent movie style. It’s all very experimental and says a lot about the imagination of the maker. The second part is no less experimental and tells about the second world, chosen for the salvation of our world. This story is told in pop-art style, with predominately over-the-top images and effects.
