Dante 01 - posted by Don

Just as the Bale scifi flick Equilibrium managed to slink quietly in and out of theatres before blowing out on DVD, Dante 01 is doing the same thing. Dante 01 was released early last year in Europe. Didn’t see a screen here in the states. Odd, considering this was written and directed by Marc Caro, who wrote and directed the cult classic The City of Lost Children

It just dropped on DVD today. You can ‘Flix it.

Here is the Synopsis:

At the edge of the galaxy, drifts Dante 01, a hellish space station designed to contain and study the worst of the criminally insane. After an unidentified mute inmate arrives on the ship, he begins to reveal frightening alien powers, and both captives and crew must decide whether he’s a monster or a Messiah.

From the acclaimed co-director of the post-apocalyptic The City of Lost Children, Dante 01 is a “visually riveting” (Lisa Nesselson, Variety) epic that takes sci-fi films to a whole new dimension.

Check out the trailer. Note: it is in French and there are boobies at the 26 second mark, so don’t get all freaky on me, ok?

I’m thinking Jean-Pierre Jeunet was more of the genius behind “City of Lost Children” and “Delicatessen” of the two directors, but I can’t say that for sure. I’m just going on how “Amelie” and “Very Long Engagement” were such great films and Caro wasn’t part of them. Of course, Caro hasn’t done much in recent years (as far as I or IMDb knows), so it’s hard to judge. I guess I have to check this film out.
