Japanese Brasil?
25 January 2007 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

This is clearly a low budget movie and its script, with just three sets and a handful of people, is more like that of a play than that of a movie. But the overall film is OK. The script is rather original, the characters presented are interesting and the outcome is not predictable.

Basically, everything happens in an elevator that goes from one level of "the world" to the other, with various people inside. Things get weird when the big-brothery Surveillance Bureau stops the elevator to transport two death-row convicts. What was interesting about the movie was the design, which included weird technology like a cell phone, cardboard milk boxes, etc, but also big ring-a-ding phones, lots of little engines and exposed wiring and levers and huge clicking buttons :)

I would have given this an 8 if it weren't for the bad ending. It seemed completely out of place.
