This is one of those movies that will have you examining your definition of reality.
The premise is that there is a computer game (like, MMO) that is so absorbing it is illegal. The game transports its players to some paramilitary wasteland a la Rainbow 6, or Call of Duty. There is, of course, a secret level that is only feasibly reached by the most elite of players. However sometimes these players end up in a catatonic state. This happened to our protagonist's old team leader. And so she and her old team-mate plunge ahead into the game searching for this most mythic of game reaches.
The film was made by a split team of Japanese and Polish crews. And it will definitely at times have you noticing each sides explicit finger prints. From the artsey pseudo/neo*B&W (think, Sin City) style coloring to the writing pace and the ahead of it's time special effects which will not leave you feeling like your watching a ten year old movie.
Sit back with this movie while drinking tea, or coffee or something. It has a slow pace but is well worth the wait for the ending.
Four ****s
Definitely check it out. (especially if you liked Ghost in the Shell)
