Eden Log

Anyone else seen this one?

It follows a man who wakes up in a muddy cave deep below great big power-generating tree. He makes his way up to the surface, on the run from security enforcers and mutants.

I quite liked most of it.. although I think I must have missed something somewhere along the line :?
And that, children, is how the little bunny rabbit got his fluffy white tail.

As a minimum, we must demand from SF that it be wiser than the world it speaks to.

I tried to watch that a few months ago. I say "tried" because I couldn't make any sense of it at all, and gave up. French movies are usually really weird, and this one's no exception. Bizarre, totally bizarre, and not in a good way.

Glad I wasn't the only one a bit confuddled :wink:

I did like the style though - even though it was mostly black...

A power generating tree? Sounds like Blish's A Case of Conscience.

I was thinking the same thing, having just read it this summer, but after watching the video decided there wasn't that much in the way of a similarity. :D
