I Want A Girlfriend With Blue Nipples!

Well, her nipples WERE blue in the trailer even if they weren't in the final edit of the film :(

Wouldn't mind a girlfriend with blue hair as well whilst I'm at it. Although the whole 'shooting things from your hands' might be a step too far for me (especially if I'm the target) but then on a plus side she does sleep with Gods..... so I may be in with a chance :D

WTF am I going on about? Just saw Immortel Ad Vitam with Dave and Sarah. General consensus was it was better than we thought it'd be. It was actually pretty amazing in parts but in others bad CGI certainly affected our viewing pleasure. They also seem to have made a puppet out of one of the things that 'should' have had the CGI treatment. Dave and myself are big Enki Bilal fans and have been for years so seeing this film was a MUST as soon as we heard it was coming out early last year. Unfortunately it never got a cinema release here in the UK and I couldn't get to France to see it last Easter so I had to wait until the DVD finally came out and Delphine was kind enough to send it to me as a Christmas present.

Some of the cityscapes and scenes are absolutely stunning but, apart from the rendering on a number of the actors, they have some pure CGI characters in the film which could really have been played better by humans as opposed to bad computer-game looking figures.

Going to have to sift through the extras on the DVD and see what else is hidden away as the copy I have has 3 discs worth of material! I also have to track down the soundtrack as it was cool and weird.

Overall I did enjoy the film, but part of that stems from my love of Bilal's work, sci-fi/cyberpunk and all things French and weird. I'd give it a B but someparts deserved an A whilst others deserved a D-.
