    Definitely weird. Worth a watch once through. If you like scifi based on comics, like Mobius, this might be for you.

    Non capisco le critiche mosse a questo gran film. Criticare la CGI non ha senso, nel 2004 era un fantastico lavoro. La trama forse è un po confusa, cmq è un gran film d'amore e se mi permettete nell'era di netflix parlare di storia sconclusionata non ha senso, visto che date voti alti a film veramente pietosi e con buchi di sceneggiatura clamorosi. Cmq io l'ho trovato un bel film, piacevole, visionario e molto innamorato.

    That movie was freaky... but I liked it... as odd & as hard as it was to follow at times.

    A very bizarre film. Good if you're suffering from an excessive screening of reboots.

    Great story, even with the early developed visual effects. A futuristic crazy pronostic about our future, but the interesting thing about this is that, gods came back. The story Horus in a mortal limit looking for trascendece. Beutifull.

    Generalmente cuando los autores de cómics asumen el papel de directores cinematográficos, el resultado deja mucho que desear. Los ejemplos más representativos son los de Frank Miller, con la adaptación de "The Spirit" de Will Eisner y Dave McKean con "Mirrormask", la adaptación de la historia de Neil Gaiman. Estos trabajos son visualmente imponentes pero vacíos de contenido y faltos de estructura narrativa. "Immortal", la adaptación del autor francés Enki Bilal de las novelas gráficas "La Feria de los Inmortales" y "La Mujer-Trampa" cae en los mismos errores. La historia futurista ubicada en la tierra en el año 2095, donde los dioses egipcios Horus, Bastet y Anubis regresan a la tierra y donde las alteraciones genéticas llevan a una historia de amor entre el rebelde Nikopol (Thomas Kretchsmann) y la mutante Jill Bioskop (Linda Hardy) es un grandioso espectáculo visual realizado por computador, pero, al mismo tiempo, es una película de ciencia ficción sin cohesión, tediosa en algunos momentos y que no tiene la misma maestría narrativa de las novelas gráficas de Bilal. Algo se perdió en el camino.

    This is, first and foremost, just weird. It takes place in a future version of New York, but it certainly doesn't feel like a real New York, it's more like Blade Runner's lazy LA crossed with Mirror Mask's reality fuzziness. The whole film plays out like a strange dream that feels like the pilot of a television show. But that's not a bad thing here. The character designs fit well into the world that has been created for them. Some of whom are 3D animated, and some scenes do not have any live action elements at all. Even though it's always detectible, the effects are reconciled because the whole world it takes place in feels like being drugged, it's consistently dreamy and weird. There is little explanation for the way things look, or for how the dirty but futuristic technology and Egyptian god related ethereal elements simultaneously play into the daily reality here, but that is how the experience of the film is built. It is marginally experimental while maintaining its sometimes incoherent plot. It offers a mood that is comfortably languid, with a pace that never feels rushed, until perhaps the end, but because of its general ambiguity, it's forgivable. The title is a little odd for what the whole of the story really is. It's less about immortality than it is about the endless biological combinations of mortals, and the sociological impact of such medical opportunities. But even given that, there are occasional lapses in logic, and the dreaminess creeps into normal conversations. I enjoyed it mostly because of its easy pace and consistent mood. It's effective on that level, and it's very interesting to watch, even though it can be at times incomprehensible.

    Terrible! No plot, confusing, and I could swear I was watching a really bad porno. Fail. Sad to say, because I love science fiction and action movies. The CGI(?) is terrible and half the time I wondered if these were real actors who fell on face paint, or if they were fake. Turns out, I'm right. Do not see!

    This was an awful movie that promotes rape culture and male posturing. Typical french *pseudo* philosophical bullsh*t... a storyline that has no point whatsoever but to show off its creative CGI imagery and cultural depravity (that's all its got, seriously).

    I can see where the plot was headed, but execution didn't quite match it.
