One can choose to indulge in the sci-fi flights of fancy seeding Alicia Scherson's Il Futuro (The Future), or become engrossed in its mercurial, hypnotic theme of sexual discovery.

In the complexly stoic Martelli and masterfully craggy, haunted Hauer, an alluringly opaque pas de deux of loss and uncertainty is wonderfully realized.

Il Futuro is a playful, soulful movie, affecting because it's populated by lost children who can somehow sense they're in a movie.

Ms. Scherson's style - backed wholeheartedly by the cool cinematography of Ricardo de Angelis - may value mood over information, but it's the perfect vehicle for a portrait of two damaged souls grasping for a security they no longer possess.

Il Futuro, aptly bereft of actual Italians, teases out the idea of thrown-off foreigners, bridged by fluid identities.

Alicia Scherson's enthralling Il Futuro asks the question no one wants to hear: How would you see the world after a personal tragedy?

Hauer, absolutely superb, exudes sadness and longing as a hulking, damaged man grasping at the past.

THE FUTURE challenges us and darts out of grasp just when we think we've gotten it, but a day later and I can't stop thinking about it.

Even though mood trumps character psychology, the entire cast provides mesmerizing, evocative performances.

There are some interesting plot points and decent performances, particularly from Martelli, but the ending doesn't really bring Scherson's ideas together in an impactful way.

A counterproductively "literary" film with no satisfying payoffs, Rutger Hauer's blind recluse notwithstanding.
