Jupiter's Moon juggles so many ideas in the air, yet none of them ever land.
Staggeringly well-shot but painfully strained.
Unfortunately, the movie's often-astonishing imagery ... has been applied to a mainstream thriller that might charitably be called goofy and more accurately described as powerfully stupid.
This serious-minded, ambitious oddity shoots for the moon of a far-off planet, but it really only finds the grace it's looking for in its magnificent supple camerawork.
It's good that this subject has been done at all but ultimately strangely disappointing.
While certainly not for all tastes, Mundruczó's provocative and hugely ambitious head-trip proves both ravishing and rewarding to those who yield to its powers.
Its imagery is exhilarating, and the plot surges forward with a loopy energy, challenging us to hang on for the ride.
It'll be remembered not for its rather woolly handling of serious subject matter, but for a couple of excellent performances, and the stunning images and sequences conjured by Mundruczó and Rév. You should probably see it but don't expect to love it.
Jupiter's Moon is an insubstantial and incomplete sci-fi yarn that strives for the dystopian heat of, say, Children Of Men -- but is too caught up in effects and a litany of inescapably mannered long takes that contribute nothing.
Although Jupiter's Moon may not be deep enough for the Cannes' audience, genre hounds who do not mind subtitles will get a kick out of it.
Given wide latitude by the hero's gift, the story floats waywardly all over the place and, though the fancy camera moves are impressive, the journey is unsatisfying.
Mundcuczo's implicit criticisms of Europe's attitude to migrants are undone somewhat by his film's messianic undercurrents, but for all that it's endlessly inventive, and ends in memorable and unexpected fashion.
