In 2054, Paris is a labyrinth where all movement is monitored and recorded. Casting a shadow over everything is the city's largest company, Avalon, which insinuates itself into every aspect of contemporary life to sell its primary export, youth and beauty. In this world of stark contrasts and rigid laws, the populace is kept in line and accounted for.

Goofs

The movie is set in 2054, this is shown at the beginning, where the date "Oct 12 2054" is given in the Avalon advertisement. Throughout the movie, Ilona is said to be 22 years old, so she should be born around 2034. However, when she is abducted in the beginning, her passport is falling to the ground and her date of birth is visible as "24/06/2020". So either the movie plays in 2042 or the d.o.b. in her passport is wrong. See more »

A film for those who like unique and individual films
2 August 2006 | by richaayySee all my reviews

This is a film i decided to go and see because I'm a huge fan of adult animation. I quite often find that when a film doesn't evolve around a famous actor or actress but rather a story or style, it allows the film to be viewed as a piece of art rather than a showcase of the actors ability to differ his styles.

This film is certainly more about style than story. While i found the story interesting (a thriller that borrows story and atmosphere from films such as Blade Runner and many anime films), it was a bit hard to follow at times, and didn't feel like it all came together as well as it could have. It definitely had a mixed sense of French Animation and Japanese Anime coming together. Whether thats a good thing or not is up to the viewer. Visually this film is a treat for the eyes, and in that sense a work of art.

If you like adult animation, or would like to see a film that is different from most films out at the moment. I would recommend it. All i can say is that i enjoyed the experience of the film but did come away slightly disappointed because it could have been better
