I really enjoyed this movie which I saw at the film festival in Montréal. The narrative takes place in Germany but the overall scenario could be applied to any industrial nation. Thematically the movie deals with key issues such as the effects of an aging society and genetic manipulation.
The director manages to combine profound subject matters with a plot about love and identity. Stylistically the film is coherent with some beautiful camera work and a cool sound design. The ending is disheartening (no happy end) and thought-provoking.
This movie was a real treat in this year's festival program. I'll look out for more German sci-fi flicks.
