quietearth [Celluloid 11.11.08] movie news scifi

I've been watching this one for a while now, and while some stills are finally available, details are still sketchy. The story seems to be about overcrowding, lack of resources and social divisions in one of the biggest cities in the world.

The story happens in the future and shows us how Mexico has changed: since everything is handled differently, we are very controlled and uniform, we are all equal and there is no physical contact or emotion. The government keeps the people repressed.

Furthermore, as a result of an enzyme located in the DNA, half the people left in cataleptic state to leave the sun, while the other half awake. (This is roughly translated). [So I'm guessing half the people live by day, and the other half by night.] However, emotions have not completely disappeared, only being anesthetized by the way of life to which they have been subjected by the authorities. Also,one of the characters Aurora meets a young man who works in the same place as her, but at night, and they fall in love.

Now again, this is all roughly translated and I'm trying to find further information, but the plot sounds fantastic, sort of a cross between THX-1138 and The Time Machine.

Check after the break for the stills!

Between this, Sleep Dealer,a and 2033 we're certainly seeing a bit of a scifi boom from Meh-hico. Looks interesting.
