BABYLON A.D.

Film Four · Sci-Fi · 30 May 2011 · by: Film 4

Mathieu Kassowitz's science fiction film is set in a dystopian future where corporations rule the cities. Mercenary Toorop (Vin Diesel) is hired by Gorsky (Gérard Depardieu) to pick up a 'package' from Russia and deliver it, via Alaska and Canada, to the high priestess (Charlotte Rampling) of a new religion in New York. The package turns out to be a young woman, Aurora (Mélanie Thierry), accompanied by a nun, Sister Rebeka (Michelle Yeoh). But as the journey progresses, Aurora demonstrates other-worldly powers and, for Toorop, what was simply a job becomes a quest for redemption as he tries to guard Aurora from the various factions that either wish her harm or want to claim her powers for their own use.
