A conversation-starter.
-Boyd Van Hoeij, VARIETY
Interesting and thoroughly well-made high concept sci-fi.

Young and shy Rebecca befriends Tommy while visiting her grandfather in a remote coastal area, but their profound fairy-tale romance comes to an end when Rebecca must follow her mother to faraway Tokyo. Twelve years later, Rebecca (Eva Green), now a young woman returns to settle in her late grandfather’s beach house. She seeks out childhood friend Tommy (Matt Smith)… their reunion is marked by a strong mutual attraction, but their passionate relationship is short-lived when Tommy is killed in a freak car accident. Devastated, Rebecca feels life cannot go on without Tommy, so she turns to the controversial “Department of Genetic Replication” for an option. Although wary of the potential repercussions, Tommy’s parents (Lesley Manville and Peter Wight) reluctantly agree to supply Rebecca with the necessary DNA sample for her to clone a new Tommy in her womb. Writer and director Benedek Fliegauf (Dealer) brings us this haunting and heartbreaking one-of-a-kind sci-fi love story.
