Schöne neue Welt

Our Daily Free Stream: Gattaca. Ist Genetik nicht einfach vorbereitende Chirurgie? Du investierst im genetischen Testlauf das Geld, was du im Leben sparst? Perfekte Gesundheit, einen hohen IQ, eine ungewöhnlich lange Lebenserwartung... Willkommen in der schönen neuen Welt von Gattaca! Für mich nicht nur einer der intelligentesten, sondern auch einer der provokativsten Science Fiction Filme. Vincent (Ethan Hawke) heisst der Held, der ein ganzes System umstürzt. Er wurde noch auf die hergebrachte Art und Weise gezeugt - und nicht gezüchtet. Nun träumt er davon, Teil einer Expedition auf den Saturn zu werden und bedient sich illegaler DNA. Aufgrund seiner sexuellen Zeugung hätte Vincent ansonsten keine Chance. Vincent hat eine heimliche Abmachung mit Jerome (Jude Law), der über die notwendig...

Thought provoking!

"I got the better end of the deal. I only lent you my body -- you lent me your dream."

In a not so distant future, human beings can be genetically constructed before birth with Biology giving parents the opportunity to influence the genetic code of their unborn children. People with the best predispositions of their parents are so called "Valids" while the natural born people are "In-Valids".

The movie starts out with Vincent being a god-child, de-gene-rate, or in-valid. The way the writer uses the term in-valid is very clever because the word can also be pronounced in-va-lid (which is an infirm or sickly person). By being genetically inferior, Vincent is discriminated against in the world that he lives in which prevents him from doing anything that most people would see as signific...

"Gattaca" by Yojimbo

In a future society where a person's worth is judged by their designer genes, a would-be astronaut forms an illegal partnership with a crippled Olympic athlete to cheat the system but they are threatened with exposure when the mission director is murdered. Gattaca is one of those thoughtful, concept sci-fis that trades special effects and action sequences for ideas and a commentary on the human condition. Gattaca is set in a world where our status is defined by the quality of our genes and explores the idea postulating that a person's dreams and ambitions can make us more than the physical shells we inhabit. Its elegant visuals reflect the society of perfection it represents and the fine performances by Hawke and Jude Law make for a moving and engaging story of a symbiotic relationship be...

One of the best movies ever made

Achieving is believing is the message of this film. When everything is looking hopeless for Vincent Freeman (Ethan Hawke) he still has his dream. He is a degenerate, a "faith birth", he has a bad heart and bad vision. And in this futuristic world where your genes determine everything, he just doesn't have what it takes. He leaves his life behind to follow his dream of being an astronaut.

Vincent teams up with Jerome Morrow (Jude Law), an Olympic swimmer who is now paralyzed and needs money to maintain his way of life. The two of their dependencies create a great story of necessity vs. desire but eventually turns into a great friendship. Irene Cassini (Uma Thurman) is equally impressive with her role as a coworker to Vincent. Her charisma really balances the movies somewhat emotionless ...
