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.

Storyline

Frank James Morley: genius. Within his self-imposed monastic and ritualistic existence, he blindly focuses on what is important - to restore balance. At a different time, the present, a child-like facsimile of Frank struggles to compute the meaning and logic to creation and existence. Is this the next stage in the evolution of humanity, or something else? Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Four humans and one bird were involved in the entire pre-production, production and post-production process of this film. Ray Rotton (production designer), Martyn Park (director), Christopher Baker (actor) and the bird, spent the entire five week shooting schedule on location isolated in the Hunter Valley Australia. After a couple of weeks they began to feel like they were the last men alive on the planet. The script required it to rain on two days over five weeks - on both scheduled occasions it rained torrentially as if listening in and helping out. See more »

True sc-fi; excellent.
11 December 2008 | by urugehtSee all my reviews

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.
