Description German troops are fast approaching Paris. Georg, a German refugee, escapes to Marseille in the nick of time. In his luggage, he carries the documents of an author, Weidel, who has taken his own life in fear of his persecutors. Those documents include a manuscript, letters and visa assurance from the Mexican embassy. Everything changes when Georg falls in love with the mysterious Marie. Is it devotion or calculation that has led her to share her life with a doctor, Richard, before journeying on in search of her husband? He's said to have surfaced in Marseille in possession of a Mexican visa for him and his wife.

I have to admit that I was afraid to take my girlfriend to see this film. We are both big fans of sci-fi movies, especially science fiction, and have watched quite a few of the genre. I know that this film is quite different from the norm, and I thought that maybe it would be interesting and take us off our little "Movie Flix" fix, but I was wrong. The film itself is something to watch, it's not meant to be taken too seriously, and not to be taken as a way of death. It's the fact that it takes us out of our "theater" and allows us to explore, that makes it so powerful. But the film is very much a "thriller" and it does force us to ponder what we are watching. The same goes for the characters, and the "I'll-never-know-what-happens-when" moment. The director, Michael Almereyda, uses very clever and ingenious camera-work to give us an overall view of what we are seeing, and he does it with a really minimal amount of dialog, which adds a lot to the overall effect of the film. I really loved the way the film used a simple, but quite effective song to show us that things are indeed very bad. The only negative I have about the film is that it does slow down a bit towards the end. It was still really good, and it's something that I would like to see again, but I think the middle and ending are a little bit long. All in all, a very unique film, that I would recommend to sci-fi fans, and anyone looking for a serious and suspenseful movie. Highly recommended!
