Junji SAKAMOTO 阪本順治

On Demand: My Brother, The Android And Me

Nippon Cinema   ª 

Kaoru is working on developing an android in his industrial complex apartment, hoping that the alter ego will be better able to tackle life. But his plans take a tragic turn. A variation on the Prometheus and Frankenstein myths, this exquisitely stylized film builds on science fiction and gothic themes to unfold a complex philosophical drama.
