Renaissance Paris 2054 (R) 102 minutes

RENAISSANCE Paris 2054-movie-R – Using CG technology, a black and white palette (No shades of grey here) and a futuristic Paris, this groundbreaking animated movie from France is filmed with in the style of Blade Runner. The cg actors are French yet the voices are English. Daniel Craig as Karas, the police detective who grew up on the streets, Romola Garai as the kidnapped Avalon chemist Ilona Tasuiev and Ian Holm as Jonas Muller. In 2054, Paris is a labyrinth where all movement is monitored and recorded. Casting a shadow over everything is the city's largest company, Avalon, which insinuates itself into every aspect of contemporary life to sell its primary export -- youth and beauty. In this world of stark contrasts and rigid laws the populace is kept in line and accounted for. Highly stylized with similarities to Sin City and A Dame to Kill For.
