Did You Know?


The film shares common points with Open Your Eyes and its American remake Vanilla Sky, which were also written by Mateo Gil. Here he revisits themes of love, loss and death within the frame of a cryogenics sci-fi story. See more »


Marc Jarvis: Life seemed like it was always just around the corner or in some brief moment past that only remained in memory. Never here. Never now. It was a promise always perceived intuitively... in a scent... in a glance... in the vague feelings caused by nostalgia... in the touch of a body that reminds us of the person we love. Why then not simply in the touch of the person we love?

More philosophy than sci-fi, true, but not lacking in the sci either
7 October 2017 | by littleitaly-71510See all my reviews

So, a lot of people went into this movie expecting to be dazzled by hi- tech conceptualizations of the future, and were disappointed. That's understandable. The tech is a background at best, although every character does seem to blend seamlessly with it. It is a background that is tastefully crafted, realistically employed and never flickers.

To add insult to injury, however, the 2 hour hypotech is stuffed with sentimentality and philosophy, rather than action and sex, as many sci- fi's are. For most people, action and sex are a far better filler than the heartfelt musings of a struggling soul, regardless of the context.

For those of us not seeking to escape to the future, we were treated to a salient, cerebral wine-tasting, of sorts...and a sobering one at that. The film seems to offer up so many spiritual, cultural messages, from so many vantage points, that it's impossible to label one bottle and drink from it. For the single-minded it's a mess. For others, it's an awakening to new flavors of suffering, and a perversion of our taste buds. Some things, once sweet on our tongue, now stain with an aftertaste. Other drinks, like death, may now crisply tinkle in the glass and repel us a bit less.

All I'm saying is that this film is more art than entertainment. Some people drink wine to get drunk and have sex. Others sip it carefully to explore its variety. Realive is certainly a film for the sipping class.
