When Helena is learning to use chopsticks with Alex, the outdoor cafe they are at is an homage to the scene in Blade Runner, when Deckard(Ford) is having noodles. Raining, outside cafe, night, a lot of functional neon as lighting. The director even threw in a clear umbrella, reminiscent of those used in Blase Runner. See more »

Charming SF with good twists and low-key direction.
The beautiful Clara Lago is on her way from a ruined Earth to Celeste, and awakes in her space- pod to find someone docking - the first living person she'll meet apart from her deceased parents. But the handsome engineer who visits to fix her oxygen is offhand, even though he kisses her... You can see the first of the twists coming (it's in the trailer) but some of the others are nicely handled. This low-key futuristic Spanish-made adventure has some good ideas, a pleasing score and cool visuals, but the director could have made more of the story's tragic implications.
