Sadly, this monumental achievement (written by David Mitchell,  transferred to the silver screen by Lana and Andy Wachowski / Tom Tykwer, and beautifully created by Babelsberg Film Studios) has come and gone without leaving a major impression on the British film-going public. I took the students from  my ‘German Utopian Thought in Fiction and Film’ seminar and they were very taken with the way utopian ideas and imagery were employed in this production. I believe that both book and film will stand the test of time, and, like Ridley Scott’s much maligned ‘Prometheus’, give people food for thought for many years to come. Everything is connected!
