| Clever and definitely worth watching
Stumbled across this on film 4 and it caught my attention immediately.The conflict inside the host was well written,acted and directed .Most Science Fiction is full of aliens with massively distorted features which is incredibly boring .This film focuses on the inner torment of an alien who is conflicted by the actions of her superior who despises humans ,while she slowly comes to question this rigorous view. Both dramatic and humorous it isn't brilliant but definitely worth watching
