Things to Come review

The setting ranges from 1940 to 2036 where war and a plague named "wandering sickness" has been spread. The effects were decent in its time, performances were alright but what impresses me was the screenplay. One of the best lines: "And if we’re no more than animals, we must snatch each little scrap of happiness, and live, and suffer, and pass, mattering no more than all the other animals do or have done. It is this, or that. All the universe or nothing. Which shall it be, Passworthy? Which shall it be?" "There’s nothing wrong in suffering, if you suffer for a purpose." Pace of the story however I felt was dragging and the score just not impressive to make an impac. Shows how a sci-fi film like Things to Come can make you realize the effects of war and humanity in general.
