“A moving look at what it means to be human in the most extreme circumstances, this is kitchen-sink sci-fi with an aching soul.”~Total Film
Aroview: The director and star of YOUNG ADAM return for this unusual take on the pandemic sub-genre, set in their Scottish homeland.
Centred around the love affair between chef Ewan McGregor and epidemiologist Eva Green, the pair find themselves in the eye of a bizarre viral phenomenon that deprives the population of their sensory perceptions. The concept works best as a "what if" scenario that intriguingly compounds, but its multi-disaster premise and the irrational grieving behaviour that accompanies the symptoms pushes it over the top. An ambitious failure, but it has its fans.

3 stars (Good Enough) A voice over provides clarification of the story but this is hard to hear due to unnecessary background music. Don't know why so much film time is spent on the love interest when there is such a great story to hand. A good performance from Eva's eye~tubbs
