1 and 0 nly (2008) Poster

1 dying planet. 1 species too many. 1 man's solution. To restore balance, all humans must die. An operatic avant-garde journey into non-existence; madness. The film is as much a transcendental experience as it is a cinematic one.

| True sc-fi; excellent.
This is great film. I attended LUFF essentially for the music but I managed to view 3 films, 1 and 0 nly, Bad Biology and Ido with 1 and 0 nly being the standout for me. I am a long time fan of Russian and Soviet cinema, Daneliya, Tarkovsky, Muratova, Zvyagintsev, and I attended this film as the festival programme listed it as "a Tarkovsky-like piece", I'm not sure that I agree but that is another story. The tone and aesthetic of this film with its minimalist cinematography contrasting against the hypnotic and drone like score work beautifully together to create a truly imaginative and cerebral science fiction film. The patronizingly didactic monologues that are paced throughout the film could have been penned by a clone of Dr. Theodore John Kaczynski and help to establish an emotional connection. The lead and only actor seems rightly cast as the martyr/scientist as he embraces this person with a candor and believability which if he had not, the film would not have worked. I enjoyed this film very much; my only regret is there aren't more films like it.
