Not what I was expecting but very good. The title seems odd for this movie IMHO.

I really enjoyed this one. Not at all the story line I was expecting. A nice blend of cool technology along with third world deprivation and ingenuity. Interesting range of leading (male) characters (females are largely only incidental in the film) and the use of "chapters" to show each one's development. The ending credits are a nice touch. One gaping plot hole (or did I miss something?) that didn't affect the greater story but still bugged me - how could just one family in the midst of such terrible water shortage have unlimited access to water without any of the other very desperate residents of the wasteland going ballistic on them??

Greed, murder, and revenge in a futuristic film noir. Nice!

Mediocre. Not really much of a story here.

This is a pretty lame dystopian film- it comes off more like a disjointed perfume ad- skip if if you're a fan of the genre.

Wow! What an amazing gem of a film. I had never heard of it when I watched it, so I didn't know what to expect. I am a sucker for dystopian/apocalyptic films so I decided to give this one a shot and I am glad I did. Although it is set in the near future, it's not really a sci fi movie, it's just a really well done drama about a family and their land. Highly enjoyed it and I highly recommend it.
