Antero Alli's brilliant, eccentric sci-fi commentary on a society whose obsession with telecommunications is mirrored by its increasing failure to relate on a person-to-person basis. Shot on a micro-budget, the film literally soars with an extraordinary screenplay rich in wit and irony, spiced with a remarkable music score that flavors the visual and intellectual genius depicted on-screen. Clearly one of the best underground films of the 1990s.
