(de) wrote: Produced by David Lynch, Directed by Werner Herzog and starring Michael Shannon, Chloe Sevigny, Willem Dafoe and Udo Kier... this was going to be the best movie ever made. At least that's what I thought before I actually watched the film.The end result isn't exactly bizarre. It's not mainstream. It doesn't boast much drama. And it's about as horrific and suspenseful as an episode of Dora the Explorer. Everything this film should have been, it isn't. Worth checking out for completists but not really the most enjoyable of watches otherwise.

(fr) wrote: Known futuristic animation with a surreal and creative story, looks and presentation. The animation production started in Prague but was moved to Paris shortly after. Done in French - the language I used too. Not sure if a dubbed version would have lifted it or not.Blue giants, known as "Draags" are ruling a planet and they take some human-ish creatures, known as "Oms" as slaves or pets or something. The Oms tries to get their freedom and there is a war going on between the two species. Who will win?This film is all about letting your mind go and observe and digest the images. It's beautifully crafted. Great drawings, sweet creatures and imaginative like drugs where a must at the production and the result is an actual drug itself. For me the best part of the film was still the soundtrack done by Alain Goraguer. Trippy, soulful jazz - almost like triphop at times. Songs from this film has been sampled by loads of artists and it's easy to see (hear) why. The combination of dope music and extraordinary, sci-fi animation is superb - but even if the story is good too, I wanted even more. I missed some character development or some feelings towards a few characters. I felt like an observer, observing an entire society. It's all right, but it feels like I missed out on many details that way and my attention fell at times. Still I would not have the lenght expanded. 70 minutes felt about right. I'm sure there is plenty of symbolism and metaphores here, but I don't get half of it. Fascinating, trippy, memorable and psychedelic film that's both disturbing and touching.8 out of 10 rain cloud producing gadgets.

(mx) wrote: Great original story, and quality cast for an HBO Film of this period. Miranda Richardson won the Golden Globe for best supporting actress, and Jean Marsh was perfectly creepy as Anna Von Hagen. Cinematography was a bit too made-for-TV, but the music score, attention to period detail, and very believable performances made this an enjoyable film. One thing's for sure: it's hard to find. I ordered my copy online from a European vendor.
