The story as suggested , you having only pieces from them. The desert and the Arab language , the town- who could be from North Africa or Middle Orient are virtues , too. The start scenes and the end are inspired. The performance is beautiful. So, a beautiful film, a serious short Sci. Fi., giving touching love story and terrible clash between people and machines, the price of desobedience and the wise, admirable use of FX.
