Audience Reviews for Dante 01

  • Aug 06, 2013
    The set design is probably the biggest issue in the film besides all the other things that went wrong in the film, it looked so cheap and the use of lighting, oh Gosh, the use of lighting, I just wanted to close my eyes and wish that it would all go away. The acting is incredibly bad as well, how one can fit so much bad acting in one film is simply astounding. There's nothing good about this film, it's just so stupid, what a waste of money. The fact that the film wanted to disguise itself in self righteous semi-religious messages really pissed me off.

    An enigmatic stranger is introduced into the population of a space station containing a collection of the criminally insane being used as guinea pigs for experimental treatments. Being directed as it was by one half of the team responsible for Delicatessen and The City Of Lost Children, Dante 01 is as visually pleasing as you'd expect. There is some beautiful imagery and use of colour and the premise intriguing in a kind of cross between Solaris and The Experiment. The script is packed with references to religion and classic literature to the point where I think you may need a PhD in philosophy to have the slightest clue what the film is actually about as little is explained and the conclusion is one of those Manga style existential spectacles that are utterly baffling to the uninitiated. The strong performances and attractive styling will keep the attention of those not too troubled by the lack of coherent narrative but anyone requiring a plot that's easy to follow and self explanatory will find it frustratingly pretentious. A genuine oddity that's worth a look for anyone seeking something a little different to the usual formulaic sci-fi.

    This film is from the 2008 Screamfest Festival. Not as good as some of the other movies show at this festival, matter of fact it was way out there. Its put out by Dimension Extreme, so I knew I was in for something wild. About a prison in space where a new inmate is sent with what appears to be healing powers and can bring the dead back to life. Nothing scary about this one more in line with sci fi. 3 1/2 stars

    A very strange mixture of sci-fi and thriller with some religious allegory thrown in. Some of it doesn't make any sense (to me) but so much of it does and I enjoyed the trademark look that Caro brings over from previous efforts that he made with co-director Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Alot apparently are turned off by it's vagueness and religious overtones but I wasn't one of them and look forward to seeing it again to determine if I can possibly understand it any better.
