This sci-fi is a decidedly un-Lelouchian Lelouch. At a time of international tension, a businessman and an actress vanish at precisely the same time and in similar circumstances. A few days later they reappear, apparently traumatised and with a message of peace and tolerance from some all powerful Beyond. Reality, hoax, or feature length dream sequence? All of the above. Bags of swank, of course (Lelouch hasn't changed that much), plus an impression of slightly more substance than usual. But be advised Trintignant keeps performing a chant of such insidious, brainwashing monotony that it's impossible to flush out of your system.
