IMMORTAL (Ad Vitam) “a French sci-fi gem that should not be missed”
By Enki Bilal
To be honest, I am disappointed with the French sci-fi productions from the last years. France has amazing potential, and I expect far better French sci-fi movies and tv series. This is because historically France has a great cinema culture. Also, France has tons of amazing sci-fi literature and graphic novels. And, there were amazing sci-fi movies created such as The Fifth Element by Luc Besson or Delicatessen by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and Marc Caro.
Another amazing French sci-fi movie is Immortal 2004 (aka Immortel ad vitam), directed by Enki Bilal after his own comics that I highly recommend. A post-apocalyptic setup, living Egyptian gods, and bio-genetics are only a few of the elements that create a unique hypnotic mysterious sci-fi masterpiece. Keep in mind that this is not a Hollywood commercial production, but a genuine sci-fi vision of one of the greatest French sci-fi masterminds.
