Movie Reviews

Eye for Film - 7/10 by Anton Bitel a dark treat which, far from patronising us with excessive exposition, leaves plenty of room in which the viewer can either wither or flourish
ESplatter - 5/10 by Lucius Gore A passable French sci-fi film, but far from great.
MovieMartyr.com - 5/10 by Jeremy Heilman Pitched between serious hard sci-fi and a mindless creature feature, it is mostly distinguished by its willingness to immerse its audience in its plot midstream.
Oregonian - 3/10 by Stan Hall Eden Log is frustrating to follow and has a protagonist almost completely devoid of personality, but Vestiel does have a certain visual flair, even if in this case it seems more suited to a video game than a movie.
User Review - 10/10 by K H excellent, we daren't blink throughout the movie
User Review - 8/10 by Esther R 2) Heb hem inmiddels gezien. Wonderlijke en intrigerende film, moet je bij en over nadenken. 1)Eden Log, ben benieuwd naar deze film.
User Review - 8/10 by Alex . intelligent, cold and frightening. a great sci-fi movie written by pierre bordage.
User Review - 8/10 by Joshua E This was a rather strange movie to say the least. It was hard to watch at the beginning because of all the darkness and light flickering, but turned to be a pretty decent movie.
User Review - 8/10 by Jeremy L I really loved this one. It's like the plot of Pandorum with the look of Tetsuo the Iron Man. It's complete Cyber Punk. I really think I saw a very similar plot in an Outer Limits once. This one is about a man who wakes up with no memories. He slowly tries to piece together what has happened in this new foreign world. The people in this world have become mutants and are feeding on the survivors. The hero finds a young lady who helps him survive (yes, this is exactly like Pandorum, but it looks a lot different). The look of it is gritty and dark. It's dirty and has an almost black and while look to it, but you see glimpses of color at times. The style of this one was overwhelming. Yes, they probably could have done a bit better, made the plot a little more understandable. But this was pretty damn good. As for the Plot: SPOILERS: From IMDB: "Imagine that the tree is the tree of life and the tree of knowledge, it also represents the whole natural world itself by way of the Nordic myth of Yggdrasil. The society believes that it can harvest the tree, "exploit it", without any ill consequences. In other words, that we can use our knowledge, the resulting power structures of society and the natural environment around us without sacrificing anything in the process. However, by using the knowledge and power of the tree society is being affected by the tree itself, people are changing, the worldtree is exacting a cost for everything it gives. In response to these changes those in power have decided to keep the ill effects of the tree a secret, to exploit the workers as they had previously intended to exploit the tree. They cover up the mutations of the workers by sacrificing them to maintain the power of the tree, creating a closed loop that maintains the status quo. Through this method they believe they can control the tree without having it change their society, without facing the reality that their old way of life is over and they need to adapt to a new reality. However, they are unable to keep control. The workers revolt, the mutations spread. Tolbiac, a guard sent to quell the worker revolts, turns out to be the first human compatible with the mutation process that the tree begins in everyone who stays in contact with it. He wakes nearly naked, cold and having forgotten who he is. Like a child having been born from the tree itself, or like someone going through a horrible mind-altering mutation and stuck in a low oxygen environment. Instead of turning into a brute savage like the others, he becomes a hybrid, able to contain the powers of the tree and parts of his humanity. If the tree is life and knowledge, Tolbiac is the representation of what humanity must become, a child of divine power who is still human at the same time. However, in undergoing these changes Tolbiac finds this new primal side of his personality impossible to control at times. The rape scenes in red were what his animal side wanted; the nice kissing stuff was how his human side was interpreting what was going on -we're not sure which actually happened -and neither is Tolbiac I am guessing that by the fact that he seemed unaware of what happened, and the fact that Tolbiak seemed horrified. You see, Inside the elavator, Tolbiac is overcome by primal urges for the first time, having flashbacks of his blackout with the Architect and realizes that he had killed him. In this state, he feels part of his humanity slip away in a roar, only to calm down. He then begins to act on the lust he feels for the botanist, first acting tenderly, then brutally as he makes sexual advances on her. When they finish, Tolbiac cannot work out if his mental flashes during sex that depicted rough sex with the botanist were not just in his head. Perhaps while they had started with mutual attraction, in his fugue state he assaulted her. Under control of himself again, Tolbiac weakly tries tell her that he was not himself, and she (reluctantly?) goes with him when the elevator breaks down." "He left the woman because she was changing into one of the mutants. She returns below so she doesn't spread the virus. The sap from the tree was supposedly an energy source being tapped by the Eden Log Corporation to provide power for the city. However, what Eden Log was actually doing was taking immigrants underground under the pretext of working in the refinery (this is why you had that "You will be offered full citizenship as a reward for your help" recording at the start of the movie) and using them to feed the tree by hanging them in those cages among the roots. Things started to go wrong when the tree begins to attack the genuine refinery workers and anyone venturing down into the lower levels begins to become mutated. Some of the scientists working on the project begin to rebel and the whole refinery descends into chaos. At the end, the hero sacrifices himself by fusing with the tree and let it feed off him, which allows it to begin growing out of control and engulf the city. " OR: "b) when he is with the botanist and he riggs him to the tree - he reverses the process in the tree - the botanist says that the tree has always been sterile - i'm guessing if he can reverse he process he can eventually make the cycle reverse so much the tree will die - so at the end of the film when he jams the roots into himself - the tree regenerates and grows so much and then dies - as seen with the city lights going out.
User Review - 8/10 by Alex D This movie is different from most, for the plot (I think) is somewhat original. I also admire how the introduction was set and the development of the background story during the movie, just like Tobiac or the main character. The plot of the story is hard to follow, but you can interpret the movie in different ways which is a good quality.
User Review - 8/10 by JY S Eden Log has a low budget and a relatively newcomer for a director by the name of Franck Vestiel. This movie has a great official website and it is a great watch.This French science fiction film is really something. If you thrown in some zombies, this is how Resident Evil SHOULD have been. The story is creative and it is told in a, for a lack of a better word, creative way.The atmosphere is dark and lacking in color, but that enhances this film even more and it helps to show the great lighting. Not only is the setting dark, but you are kept in the dark with the story as well. You literally follow the journey of the main character, who wakes up at the bottom of a cave with no memory, as he makes his way through a maze of a laboratory. Whenever he learns something, you learn it with him.Yes, the plot will seem flat for most of the movie because you don't really know what is going on, but the ending will explain most things. Besides, the camerawork and the visuals are nicely done. The mutant creatures look good and the digitized voice work from the computer systems are fantastic. Even the background music is spot on.There isn't much to say about the acting since the dialogue is at a minimum. For the most part there is only one major character for the first half of this 1 hour 40 minute film and two in the second half. Still, this is far from boring.To be honest, this film may not be for everyone, but I think a good portion of people will appreciate the consistency and writing of this picture.Oh yeah, there are two spoken versions of this film. French and English. They are not dubs either. The scenes where the language is visible from the character's mouths are shot twice, one for each language. This isn't a whole lot since the rest of the dialogue comes from people behind masks or recordings from speakers.
User Review - 8/10 by Gaupillat G Audacious and brilliant for a first film from Franck Vestiel ( minimalistic )
