Critic Reviews for Electroma
Helmers [Daft Punk] bizarrely choose not to use their own catchy tunes here, the one thing that might have given pic slim commercial legs.
But despite the clichés, the overblown music, the sweeping cinematography, and a number of very identifiable film references, the film succeeds in making an impression.
Worth a look if you enjoy pretty images and a simple message wrapped in layers of artifice.
Audience Reviews for Electroma
Electroma is a quiet, surreal, psychadelic short film (a bit over an hour). It is for the type of person who will spend a long time looking at art or listening to music and doing nothing else; it is not much like Interstella 5555 at all. I cannot really argue with the people that disliked the film. I happened to be in a very chill mood when I watched it and found it very interesting.
Electroma is the story of two robots (Daft Punk) who break from the norm to express their inner individuality in a world populated by robots, with disastrous consequences. This is an experimental film with no dialog whatsoever, running a generous 74 minutes, and some people may feel it drags on a bit in parts. Even fans of Daft Punk may be left scratching their heads since it doesn’t feature their music but, supposedly, it syncs up with their album Human After All ala Pink Floyd/Wizard of Oz. If you are not into experimental film you will probably much prefer their animated excursion, Interstella 5555, which I highly recommend. I haven’t tried synchronizing it to their album but I enjoyed it just fine, though it should be said I’m a fan of unusual movies. The photography is very professional considering they are amateur film makers, and there’s enough here to keep your interest, all without the need for words. I hope they’ll continue exploring their visual creativity through cinema in the future, and if it sounds like something you might enjoy, check it out.
