The curious premise is that of a "female" android that flies through space alone, saved by a computer, delivering scattered human packets. This is a metaphor for the errors of humanity.
The notion of one alone with his thoughts is intriguing, but before elaborating on it, it is worth mentioning the feeling that we have already seen a solitary space traveler with a tape player in a small movie last year called ... " Guardians of the Galaxy". Reels are not the only anachronistic mismatch. Our beautiful cyborg is powered by household batteries and relies on vacuum tube computing, which comes with electricity plugs and an Edison lamp.
More interesting, the spaceship takes the form of Japanese "ie" or home. It is the consequence of mankind's destructive ways that the android has the work it has, but there is almost nothing organic to be found in the film. The loneliness of the android during his travels leads to philosophizing about his employers, which is more than most humans can say about themselves. A good movie to be thought of!

Even with subs it's an incomprehensible art house movie; follows the rulebook religiously - even to being filmed in black and white. Basically, just a nonsense movie made by a pseudo intellectual director who believes he much more clever than he really is. Don't bother unless you're tired and need something interminably boring to send you to sleep - you'll be fine because even the dialogue is quite hushed and spoken in hushed tones and whispers. lol!

I'm not going through the review list stage by stage - there's no point. I gave the actors 2.5 because they did the best they could with a dire script. I wouldn't even watch this once if you can avoid it, so it has ZERO rewatch value but the review won't let me do that, so 1 it is. I can't believe how bad this was to be honest. It wasn't even one of the 'so bad it was good'....it was just TERRIBLE.

The plot had a LOT of promise and could've been something really thought provoking - sadly the director had other ideas.
